Addressing Homelessness in Kelowna


The Kelowna Homelessness Research Collaborative (KHRC) is a new interdisciplinary team of UBCO researchers and graduate students, and community partners. With expertise from diverse fields including anthropology, data science, economics, engineering, geography, management, medicine, neuroscience, nursing, social work, and sociology, the team is focused on finding solutions to address the homelessness crisis and the community impact of stigma. Led by Dr. John Graham, this collaborative grew out of the need to embed research in Kelowna’s Journey Home Strategy to better understand intersecting facets of homelessness and offer evidence-based approaches to mitigate and eradicate it.  For more information about KHRC, and their research activities and upcoming events check out the new KHRC website, subscribe to their mailing list, read the August Newsletter, or email KHRC at
