What We Believe

Helping people help themselves is essential in addressing homelessness and all the issues that surround it. Securing appropriate housing is the first and most essential step in achieving responsible independence for individuals.


Lookout Emergency Aid Society is a charitable organization and social safety net that provides housing and a range of support services to adults with low or no income who have few, if any, housing or support options. Because the people we serve have challenges meeting basic needs and goals, we place minimal barriers between them and our services.

Who We Help

There are an estimated 3,700 individuals homeless in Metro Vancouver, a large population compared to other regions in Canada.
