End Homelessness Winnipeg is an Indigenous-led, community-based, non-profit organization that draws its mandate from the 10-year Plan to End Homelessness in Winnipeg.

Launched in 2014 following 2 years of community engagement, the 10-year Plan was the first of its kind for our city, setting out to make the shift from managing homelessness through emergency responses, to ending it through long-term solutions like homelessness prevention, person-centered care, adequate housing and improved coordination, communication and evaluation.

End Homelessness Winnipeg was created in 2015 to provide backbone support for implementing this plan with all levels of government, community service providers, and people with lived experience, using a Collective Impact approach to build a common agenda and measure progress.

Since 2019, End Homelessness Winnipeg has also served as a Community Entity for Reaching Home, receiving and administering federal homelessness funding locally.
