The Newfoundland & Labrador Housing & Homelessness Network (NLHHN) is an incorporated not-for-profit provincial organization working collaboratively and creatively with community and government partners to end homelessness and ensure housing stability throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Strategies include:

- Research and data co-ordination
