Homeless Action Week is an annual event which focuses on bringing public awareness and understanding to the issue of homelessness in the Greater Vancouver region.

Homelessness Action Week is an opportunity to get involved in activities in your community. Through spreading the word about homelessness action through education, advocacy, and social media activity, the hope is to raise awareness of this very important subject which affects all our communities.

The Society to End Homelessness in Burnaby hosts the Homeless Connect Event annually to support connection between volunteers, service providers, politicians, professionals, and some of our most vulnerable citizens. At the Connect event, many services are available for those experiencing poverty or homelessness in our city. Food, clothing, shoes, haircuts, hygiene items, foot-care, bike tune ups, showers, games, flu shots, dental care, optometrist, books, a band and many other service are typically provided.
