The Aboriginal Coalition to End Homelessness Society (ACEH) is a reputable non-profit and registered charitable housing provider dedicated to supporting Indigenous peoples experiencing homelessness. Our work centers around the voices of those who have shared their experiences, immediate needs, and solutions. Through building partnerships locally and island-wide, the ACEH works to identify and address systemic and structural barriers and share information, resources, and lessons learned while also providing cultural support, connections, and housing stability.
Our Vision: Our way is to care for all our people, from the youngest to the oldest. We are all one. Some of our people living away from home are suffering, isolated and homeless. We stand together to end homelessness.
