GREATER VICTORIA COALITION TO END HOMELESSNESS (GVCEH)
The Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness (GVCEH) was founded in 2008 with one goal in mind: to end homelessness in the capital region. The GVCEH coalition is comprised of a diverse membership across a wide spectrum from non-profits all the way up to the government.
The coalition is on a mission to ensure appropriate solutions are in place to assist individuals facing the challenges that arise from homelessness within the capital region, and to provide access to safe, affordable, appropriate, long-term housing.
To better facilitate that access, the GVCEH Apprentice Garage team has designed Herluma, a site designed to connect shelters, and eventually other service providers, together and make information about housing and other supports more accessible to women+.

The Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness (GVCEH) is a regional backbone organization that, in collaboration with the homelessness sector in the Greater Victoria region, works towards a mission of ensuring there is adequate and safe housing, shelters, support, and services for everyone facing homelessness. The GVCEH wants an INSPIRE Team to develop an easily accessible way for women+, who are at risk of violence and homelessness, to learn about and access safe and appropriate housing, support, and services.
