The Temporary Autonomous Shelter Collective (TASC) is a group of homeless, unstably housed and housed individuals who are determined to take collective action on homelessness by ensuring that all residents on Coast Salish can live with dignity, autonomy and respect.

The purpose of the report was to capture a “snapshot” of the overall health and wellbeing of individuals visiting the Burnside Family Medical Clinic. The information gathered can be used to develop a deeper understanding of health and well-being in the neighbourhood, while serving as baseline data to analyze changes as the community grows. The findings will be disseminated to community groups, agencies, service providers and policymakers in order to enrich their efforts to meet the needs of the diverse populations they serve.
