New Housing Team Provides Help for Family Stability, Youth Independence – Kw’umut Lelum

Here in BC, more than 20% of Indigenous households are “in core housing need”, meaning their homes are unsuitable, unaffordable or insufficient to meet the needs of their household. For the children and families we serve, access to safe, affordable and adequate housing is a huge barrier to their health and wellness.

Recently, KL has launched a new program that puts the issue of housing front and centre – and provides hands-on education and support for Indigenous families and youth.

Troy Brooks, Housing Coordinator for KL, helps community members to support their housing needs – whether that is assisting with BC Housing applications, organizing viewings, performing rental market searches or helping develop a family housing budget. He is also the facilitator for our new Rent Smart program, open to anyone from our member Nations.
