In response to the pandemic, the Covid-19 Task Force for Vulnerable Populations was formed to shelter and support those precariously housed or experiencing homelessness. Temporary shelter includes a 36 room Duncan hotel and 36 sleeping cabins in 3 sites. Key partners include Our Cowichan Health Network, Cowichan Tribes, the City of Duncan, and the Cowichan leadership group.
At the Cowichan Housing Association (CHA), we believe that stable, secure, accessible and affordable housing is foundational to healthy individuals, families and communities. We work to increase affordable housing options and to reduce homelessness in the Cowichan Region through research, community development, homelessness prevention programming and facilitating affordable housing development.
