It’s called the ‘Journey Home Strategy,’ an action plan to solve Kelowna’s homeless problem.

The initiative, spearheaded by the City of Kelowna, is based on a model called ‘Housing First,’ which is used in communities across North America.

“Housing First really identifies that to end a person’s experience of homelessness, you give them a home. That’s where you start, housing first,” Journey Home transition team member Mike Gawliuk said.
