Member Agencies believe in the importance of building community support for the key initiatives that are reached by the process of consensus decision-making by Coalition members.

How to become a Member Agency
Organizations are asked to appoint one representative. Member organizations may send an alternate to a meeting in the absence of the appointed representative. Member organizations may be added at any time by consensus of the group.
What is the role of Member Agencies
Members of the Coalition agree with the overarching objectives of the Coalition, and are looking forward to working with Coalition members to create a comprehensive vision and plan with specific goals to end the impact of homelessness in Campbell River.
They are willing to receive information that the Coalition feels is relevant to our shared objectives and commit to actively support and promote the initiatives that are identified by the Coalition to address the priority needs. Members understand our role will be to contribute to discussions that inform Coalition members to reach decisions.
Members of the Coalition will be comprised of representatives of community stakeholders from a diverse cross section of organizations including, but not limited to:
Indigenous groups (Friendship Centres, and not-for-profits)
Not-for-profit service provider organizations
Not-for-profit housing providers
If you want to be involved but you don’t see your agency/organisation as one of these, you might be eligible to become an Advisory Member - check out the link for more information.
