Housing, Harm Reduction and Grace: My Visit to Vancouver’s Downtown East Side

BY Invisible People

|

My first day in Vancouver was educational and literally changed me in many ways. I spent the day with Coco Culbertson from Portland Hotel Society and Bill Briscall from RainCity Housing. I was very impressed with both organizations and their creative solutions to fight poverty, homelessness and drug addictions.

You might ask why I put the word grace in the title. My next post will explain more.
