The Hope For Freedom Society operates a program of outreach to persons homeless or at risk of homelessness in the Tri-Cities under contract to BC Housing. Two outreach workers seek out homeless persons where they live, establishing contact, developing rapport and connecting them with available resources and services when they are ready. Hope for Freedom also operates the Homeless Resource Centre at Northside Church (Kingsway Campus) in Port Coquitlam with shower facilities, counselling and job search support.
