HomeFree Collective

The HomeFree Collective is a community-wide approach to ending homelessness in our community. Members include non-profit housing providers and social service agencies, landlords and property management companies, developers and builders, realtors and mortgage brokers, persons with a lived experience of homelessness, urban Aboriginal community representatives, foundations and individual funders, university professors and student researchers, government agencies, community leaders and concerned citizens, and political representatives from all four levels of government.

The HomeFree Collective has undergone a redesign to become more action-focused, responsive, and inclusive of both the voices of people with a lived experience of homelessness and of the urban Aboriginal community. The new structure can be seen below.

At the core of the Collective is a Lived Experience Committee made up of people who have experienced homelessness and are now housed. The Collective also includes a Council that receives information from and provides feedback to three working committees – Policy & Governance, Aboriginal, and Housing & Supports – and a Funding Task Force.

Challenges and opportunities to ending homelessness in the community that are discussed at the Council and committee tables are brought to a Chairs Committee and distilled into key issues and policy recommendations, and then brought to a Community to Government Advisory Group consisting of our political representatives.
