Peer Housing Support
Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness
This episode we sit down to talk to the Peer Housing Support project team from the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness. The Peer Housing Support Project is a community-driven solution to bring those transitioning from homelessness to housing together with experiential peer supporters.
Peer supporters provide a range of support and assist peers in navigating available resources, thus promoting success in the transition to stable housing. The program was designed by and for people with lived experiences of homelessness and continues to be guided by the Peer Housing Support Advisory Committee.
Stay tuned to hear more about the importance of peer support and how it should be a core component to supporting people transitioning from homelessness to housing and also tips on implementing a similar program in your community.
