100 More Homes Penticton is a collection of community leaders who came together in 2016, initially to provide housing and supports to 100 vulnerable people in Penticton by July 2018. In 18 months of collaborative work, 133 people were housed.

There is still significant need in the community. Our vision is to  continue to work collaboratively with shared goals and priorities, to prevent – and eventually end – homelessness in Penticton. The initiative is part a larger, national campaign called 20,000 Homes organized by the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness
