A big THANK YOU to the Report Card Committee and NCOH Advisory Committee members; service provides and people with lived experience of homelessness/housing challenges who shared quotes, all the presenters/panelists at the press release, and to everyone who provided data, feedback, and support for this year’s Report Card.  The Report Card is always a big team effort and would not have been possible without your wonderful help!

What is the Nelson Committee On Homelessness (NCOH)?

Nelson Committee on Homelessness is a volunteer committee of service agencies,
government representation, and concerned citizens dedicated to leading a
collaborative and coordinated response to homelessness. Founded in 2001, we work with members of the community, businesses, governments, and other stakeholders to identify and implement evidenced-based solutions to homelessness and poverty & support entitlement to safe, affordable, and sustainable housing as a human right. Acting as Nelson’s Community Advisory Board for Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy, we make recommendations to our Community Entity (Nelson CARES Society) on the distribution of federal funding aimed at achieving the goals of Reaching Home. We encourage collaboration, new initiatives, research, information-sharing, knowledge building, community partnerships, and engaging the voice of people with lived experiences of homelessness in all decision-making.

NCOH acknowledges our respect for, and deep gratitude to, all the ancestors and keepers of the land on whose traditional territories we are honoured to live and work.
