Community Initiatives and Housing
Over the years we have conducted community consultations and research to better understand issues of homelessness and housing trends.
In 2016, we held two community forums on Youth Homelessness and are currently working with our community partners on a Housing First approach and Youth Housing Implementation Plan.
CHA is actively working on the development of a Housing Trust to provide a housing reserve fund to support future Housing Projects.
During 2017, CHA will be developing a comprehensive database to give the community better and more accessible information about housing supply and need in the Cowichan Region.
CHA provides information and support to tenants who are seeking information or wish to understand their rights and responsibilities.
We offer individual support and Ready to Rent programs such as RentSmart Workshops and Courses.
We also maintain Community Resource Guide for information on related programs and services in the community.
