Help provide housing, food and community for vulnerable people in Vancouver
Living on the streets is an isolating experience – and finding community can play a big role in helping someone get back on their feet. That is why for nearly 50 years The Kettle has worked hard to give people experiencing homelessness in Vancouver a sense of community as well as provide them with housing, support and employment opportunities. However, the need in Vancouver is now higher than ever. As an individual, it can be hard to know how to help – but you can make a difference.
