BCSTH 2022 24 Hour Census Survey Highlights

The 2022 24 Hour Census survey numbers are in! A huge thank you to all of the Transition Housing and Supports Programs and PEACE Programs who participated in the 24 Hour Census on November 30th & December 1st 2022.

Key findings show that in just one day, 94 Transition Housing and Supports Programs and 63 PEACE Programs served 1,847 women, children and youth experiencing violence in their homes. However, a further 571 women, youth and children were unable to be served by these life-saving services during the same time period, and there were 632 children and youth on waitlists for PEACE Program services.

These numbers clearly demonstrate the lack of funding for Transition Housing and Supports Programs and PEACE Programs in BC. We call on the government to increase funding for these services to enable them to meet the needs of ALL women, youth and children who are unsafe in their homes.

The full reports will follow in April – stay tuned!
