About Us

Faith Partners for Housing came together in late 2015, motivated by experiences working as volunteers in our local shelters and with people on the edge of homelessness.  Vancouver’s first highly visible tent city shocked many in our faith communities.  This is not what our community should be like.   We want to live in a community where all workers can afford a safe and decent home for their families. We want to live in a community where seniors need not worry about becoming homeless.  We want to live in a community that cares for those with disabilities, both physical and mental.  We want to live in a community where the most vulnerable need not live in tents.

We can make this happen. It’s our community.

The mission of Faith Partners for Housing is to connect people who have resources – land, buildings, homes, expertise – with organizations who can effectively transform those resources into housing affordable for low-income families, singles, and seniors.

We are a grassroots organization of individuals from various faith-based communities and other organizations.
