Homelessness is never easy, but there is help available if you’re experiencing homelessness or if you’re at risk of experiencing it.

About Us

Working to Make the
System Better

At Journey Home, we see a future where everyone has a place to call home, where people who have lost, or are at risk of losing their housing, have access to a coordinated and easy-to-navigate system of care. A system of care that creates a safety net to catch people when their housing slips, supporting and housing them as they find their feet again.

Getting kicked out of family, feeling no sense of belonging, connection or purpose. In seeking community, I found a place where people understood me, accepted me.

I Want to Help

Help Us Make a Difference

Homelessness has an impact on all of us, not just those who experience it directly. Kelowna isn’t just a city, it’s a community. We all have a role to play in making homelessness history, just as we’ll all benefit from a community that’s made healthier, happier, wealthier and more productive by addressing homelessness.

Lived Experience Circle on Homelessness

The LECoH saw stigma as more than an emotional hardship or a cause of hurt feelings, they saw it creating real barriers that prolong and perpetuate homelessness.
