The Metro Vancouver Homeless countless was carried out a few months ago but now a 70 page “final report’s” come out detailing some of the findings.
The report, by the Greater Vancouver Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness, says among respondents, 79% reported living in the city where they were interviewed for at least a year.
51% of the homeless said they lived in the same place for ten years or more.
More than 200 homeless said they had lived in the city where they were interviewed their entire lives and many others had moved to the community at a young age.
What’s most disturbing in the report: 88 children were counted as homeless accompanied by a parent.
