Serving Our Community

Taking Care of Our Neighbors

The Reaching Home Indigenous Homelessness funding stream is a community-based program funded by the Government of Canada to help meet the needs of First Nations, Inuit, and M├ętis people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. It helps communities address homelessness by providing funding to eligible organizations that promote social inclusion, cultural connection, and other culturally appropriate supports.

The Prince Rupert Aboriginal Community Services Society (PRACSS), acting at the Community Entity, in conjunction with the Prince Rupert Steering Committee on Aboriginal Homelessness (Community Advisory Board) evaluates project applications from community organizations for initiatives that align with the Government of Canada’s Reaching Home Strategy. This funding intends to meet the specific needs of the off-reserve homeless and nearly homeless Indigenous population located in Prince Rupert, British Columbia.
