Those who experience homelessness or who are at-risk of homelessness are a diverse group who often face multiple barriers, have complex needs, and for numerous reasons, are struggling to make ends meet.
At Mamele’awt Qweesome Housing Society, when an empty unit becomes available, we try our best to prioritize those who are currently homeless or most at-risk of becoming homeless. That being said, our current housing is second stage and we do not, at this time, have any shelter or emergency housing. We would be more than happy to refer you to what currently is offered in the area.
Funded by the Homelessness Partnership Strategy, Mamele’awt Qweesome has recently hired an Aboriginal Community Connections Worker to carry out research, make connections, build relationships and expand our understanding as to what programs and services exist in the Fraser Valley region. By doing so we can find ways to partner together, coordinate services and support those in need without duplicating services. A resource guide of culturally-appropriate services and supports throughout Mission, Abbotsford and Chilliwack will be compiled for those who are currently chronically or episodically homeless, at-risk of becoming homeless, or vulnerably housed.
