Megan Capp

Associate Director of Housing and Community Justice

Megan is Archway’s Associate Director of Housing and Community Justice.  In this role she develops and oversees community-based initiatives for those who have traditionally been under supported, especially for those currently living unsheltered or who are precariously housed. 

Megan and her teams have created various temporary winter shelters and worked to establish Hearthstone Place – Abbotsford’s first supportive housing site.  Megan’s role further involves developing programs for seniors, reducing food insecurity, alleviating legal issues and more.

To ensure her practical work is evidence-based, she is also a researcher focusing on access to justice, criminal justice reform and human rights.  Megan holds a Master of Arts degree in Conflict Analysis and Management from Royal Roads University where her thesis focused on access to justice – particularly for women and those in situations of vulnerability. She is currently a doctoral student at the United Nations mandated University for Peace where her research focuses on enhancing the criminal justice response to better safeguard and support children affected by parental involvement in the justice system.

She is active in her community and is a proud board member of the Canadian Coalition for Children of Incarcerated Parents, as well as the International Coalition for Children of Incarcerated Parents.

She is dedicated to implementing trauma-informed approaches that prioritize human dignity while addressing complex social issues – further ensuring public safety remains uncompromised.

As a mother of 3, Megan loves to spend time with her family, in her garden, with her knitting needles, cooking up new recipes while listening to Billy Joel, or at her sewing machine.
