Homelessness Action Week

October 11-17, 2015


From Oct 2015 – March 2016

Tapping the Resource Bank – Understanding Expanded Housing Services: A workshop series led by the DEWC housing team for women in the community on a range of issues related to safe, affordable housing.

DEWC will be holding this workshop series on housing services for women accessing the emergency night shelter.  This is a Homelessness Action Week event funded in part by the City of Vancouver.

Homelessness Action Week’s purpose is to raise public awareness on the issues of homelessness, and rally local solutions to the issues. DEWC’s workshops will begin October and continue into next year until March.

For 38 years, the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre has provided a safe space for women and children in the Downtown Eastside. We provide practical support, basic necessities and hot nutritious meals to over 500 women and children every day. We support women to make positive changes in their lives by connecting them to a continuum of services including outreach, advocacy, wellness, recreation, housing and skills development.
