Our Story

A Place to Come Home To

The Society to End Homelessness in Burnaby was established in 2017 by the multi-stakeholder Burnaby Task Force on Homeless (formed in 2005) to build sustainability and provide leadership in the reduction and resolution of homelessness in Burnaby.
The Society works to support individuals experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness in Burnaby. Since the beginning of the global pandemic, we now service 150% more guests at our Outreach Resource Centres.

Services We Offer

Outreach Resource Centres

A "One-Stop Shop" of services for our vulnerable neighbours so they can easily access basic life necessities and resources for social aid in one convenient location. Our 3 locations operate weekly Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in Burnaby.

Community Food Hub

Our Food Hub is a safe, non-judgemental space where our community’s most vulnerable can receive essential grocery items with dignity. We operate weekly on Tuesdays, except for assistance cheque issue week.

Learn More

Mobile Shower Program

We offer our guests weekly access to the necessity of a hot shower to help people maintain their health and wellness.  It also helps to combat the stigma caused by poor hygiene common amongst those living outside or couch-surfing. Guests are provided with fresh towels, hygiene supplies and clean gently used clothes.  They are also linked to the Outreach Resource Centres and other services.

Extreme Weather Response

EWR makes safe spaces available when the weather is severe enough to pose a higher health risk to people who experience homelessness. It operates during times of extreme heat or cold. These collaborative initiatives bring the wider community together to reduce the harm to the most vulnerable. Our cold weather service provider is Lookout Housing and Health Society.

Our Volunteers Play A Big Role In Helping Us End Homelessness In Burnaby!

The Society To End Homelessness In Burnaby operates various community support programs including three Outreach Resource Centres (ORC), a community Food Hub, and a mobile shower program working collaboratively with local agencies, businesses and faith communities.
Our programs provide food, clothing, toiletries and outreach worker assistance for vulnerable members of our community who are food insecure and at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Our programs operate solely on donations from businesses, faith community members and concerned citizens including in-kind donations of volunteers like you!
