In the year 2,000, Lu’ma partnered with Service Canada and the Aboriginal Homelessness Steering Committee of BC (with a membership of over 20 service providers) to assist in the delivery of funding and assist in the areas of reporting.
Also, Lu’ma has been a very strong advocate for Aboriginal homelessness issues in Canada with many think tanks visiting us from Ottawa to Vancouver to learn about our solutions. Today, the homelessness initiative at Lu’ma continues to assist Aboriginal homelessness service providers in Vancouver to apply and access funding successfully, monitor & evaluate projects, and ensure complete reporting.
