has something to offer.

Programs and Services

We are a 24/7 Emergency Shelter and a day time Drop-in Centre offering safe refuge to adults in the Sea to Sky Corridor who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

The shelter offers a 15 bed overnight program and drop-in service. The shelter serves a nutritious lunch and dinner everyday, and provides all day snacks as well as bathroom, shower and laundry facilities.

Also available to our participants are internet and phone service, homeless outreach, resource and referrals, in addition to regular access to Public Health nurses and Mental Health practitioners. As we support our participants towards independence we offer case planning services, support groups along with an opportunity to socialize and belong to a vibrant and caring community.
