Abstract:

Since its inception the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness has taken significant steps to eliminate homelessness. Recognizing the importance of taking action to prevent homelessness, the Coalition appointed a working group in 2009 to develop a prevention plan. While it is a self-evident truism that preventing homelessness is important, it is also a much more difficult task as those with the potential to become homeless are not as visible in our communities. Recognizing this challenge, the working group, made up of representatives from government, the health authority and community organizations conducted a preliminary literature review and held planning workshops to identify the target populations, trigger factors and emerging best practice responses. Without prevention homelessness will not end, even as we are rescuing people from a life of homelessness others are falling victim. To eliminate homelessness, we must break the cycle that leads to it.
