About the DTES SRO Collaborative (SRO-C)
The SRO-C is a non-profit organization that works to improve habitability, affordability, and sense of belonging for 4,000 tenants living in Vancouver’s privately-owned Single Room Occupancy hotels (SROs). Established in 2015, the SRO-C has grown to operate multiple tenant-based initiatives in fifty hotels around food, harm reduction, maintenance, culture and tenant committees. These initiatives are supported by 15 staff members, over 100 peer workers, plus dozens of funders and community partners. Our goal is to create a large, long-term network of tenants who can grow to support each other, address collective needs, put down roots, and feel part of the wider community. Through this network, tenants can be part of efforts to redevelop their SRO housing into decent, affordable self-contained housing.
