If you are on Cool Aid’s website, you probably already know that homelessness is a reality for many people in our community. To help us understand what that really looks like, the Coalition to End Homelessness has launched a series of installations showing where more and more people in our city are calling home every year.

Help spread the message that homelessness is unacceptable. Click here for the Unacceptable campaign web site, or tweet #unacceptableyyj to @homeforhope. Together, we can end homelessness.

“It’s estimated that more than 600 youth and young adults are experiencing homelessness in Greater Victoria. As many as 80% of homeless youth do not sleep rough on the streets, but are ‘hidden’. They may couch surf, or sleep in cars.” – Coalition to End Homelessness
