Reaching Home

Reaching Home Homelessness Strategy

Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy is the redesigned federal homelessness program that replaced the Homelessness Partnering Strategy.
Reaching Home is a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness. The program provides direct support and funding to Designated Communities (urban centers), Indigenous communities, territorial communities and rural and remote communities across Canada to help them address their local homelessness needs and ensure Canadians maintain safe, stable and affordable housing.
Reaching Home supports the goals of Canada’s National Housing Strategy in supporting the most vulnerable Canadians in maintaining safe, stable, and affordable housing and aims to reduce chronic homelessness nationally by 50% by 2027-2028.

Indigenous Homeless Stream

Reaching Home’s Indigenous Homelessness stream provides funding to organizations that provide supports to meet the unique needs of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness in “other urban areas” in BC.
The program promotes social inclusion and cultural connections within communities and aims to ensure that culturally appropriate supports are available for Indigenous Peoples who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness in urban areas.
You can learn more about Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy Directives on the Government of Canada website.
