Hi everyone,

The Under One Umbrella Society (formerly known as the Grandview Woodlands Drug and Alcohol Coalition) is pleased to announce Under One Umbrella 2010, our third annual service fair for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in East Vancouver.  Please find attached the poster and wallet card for the event.  We have printed posters ready to go and will be asking outreach workers in the community to hand out wallet cards during the week leading up to the event.

This year’s event will be on Saturday, January 16th from 10 am to 3 pm at the Maritime Labour Centre.  We have around 40 service providers booked to attend this year’s event with a focus on direct service provision on site (see the poster for a list of just some of the services that will be there this year).  Something new this year is mini skill-building workshops throughout the day.  Some examples will be a women’s safety training workshop by PACE, tenants rights workshop by TRAC and an employment search workshop by Pathways.  Of course, our event always includes free clothing, lots of delicious and healthy food and entertainment too.

Please post and forward to those you think might be interested. If you’re interested in volunteering or if you have any questions, please contact Damian, our event coordinator at

Many thanks and Happy Holidays!
