Poverty and Homelessness Action Week (PHAW)

Held every October, PHAW is designed to raise awareness and promote action to end poverty and homelessness in the Yukon. Started in 2005, PHAW has grown to include activities sponsored by a wide cross section of organizations, individuals, businesses, churches, schools and the media.

PHAW 2015 was held October 13 - 18. Click here to view our 2015 calendar of events.

2015’s theme was ‘Leading to End Poverty’. Events include a our third annual Bring A Blanket, Leave a Blanket Community Movie Night at Shipyards Park, Whitehorse Connects, much conversation about the upcoming Municipal & Federal Election and a Free Swim at the Canada Games Centre to honour International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
