Housing Support Worker
Peers Victoria is a grassroots agency that has been working providing support services to people in the sex industry since 1995. Through direct service delivery and partnerships, Peers provides outreach, harm reduction, and drop-in services, as well as wellness workshops, housing support, and social justice leadership concerning sex workers rights, primarily in Victoria, the territory of the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. We maintain a welcoming environment congruent with our values of providing harm reduction, clientcentered services which contribute to social justice and draw on experiential knowledge.
The CRD, in collaboration with Reaching Home has provided Peers Victoria with the opportunity for supplemental funding to support the unhoused and precariously housed community with shelter prevention and diversion, basic needs and eviction prevention support services. Reaching Home is a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness by providing direct support and funding to Designated Communities (urban centers), Indigenous communities, territorial communities, and rural and remote communities across Canada.
