Ten Surrey organizations received grants totaling over $260,000 from the Surrey Homelessness and Housing Society for projects that will have a direct impact on homelessness in Surrey.
This funding will help create 30 new transition beds in Surrey, including 5 youth beds. Grant funding is also supporting the necessary planning work at several homeless-serving agencies that will result in more permanent housing units for our homeless. Finally, a portion of grant funding is directed toward important capacity building and research initiatives that allow our homeless-serving agencies to better respond to the needs of our diverse homeless populations.
