Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency and Taxpayers Money

After BChomeless.com discovered the “Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency” that are payed by the taxpayers we wonder if all that money they get would not be better spent for homeless shelters who need more spaces?

Contact them and ask them. What are they doing with with our taxpayer money?  Housing becomes less affordable every year.  Yet taxpayers pay them every  year.
