Who We Are

A Way Home Kamloops is a charitable non-profit that provides housing and support services to youth at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Our organization provides a range of wraparound supports from prevention to housing to employment and education to support youth in achieving critical developmental milestones as part of a healthy transition to adulthood. A Way Home Kamloops provides a continuum of housing options and operates from a “Youth Housing First” philosophy. To support youth in achieving “adulting” skills, we provide a variety of programs including life-skills, case management, employment readiness, peer navigation, and support groups. A Way Home Kamloops is a leader and innovator in preventing and ending youth homelessness.​

A Way Home Kamloops is implementing Kamloops’ Community plan “A Way Home: A plan to end youth homelessness". This plan has transformed our community towards ending homelessness and provided a model for other communities to adapt to their unique context. A Way Home Kamloops provides community coordination to reduce gaps in services & ensure there are no wrong doors for homeless youth. Our community collective ensures every sector and member has a pivotal role to play in ending youth homelessness.

 

We work with a collective of 200+ members from all sectors including youth, non-profits, landlords, businesses, students, ministries, and community members.
