We are Squamish Helping Hands

Vision: An end to homelessness and hunger throughout our community

At Squamish Helping Hands we believe that everyone has something to offer. We are more than just a shelter, we are an exchange: our participants are encouraged to contribute through meaningful work, cultivate resiliency through a supportive community, and strive for independence through a Housing First Approach.


We feed, we house, we dignify.
