:: Our Services

We provide housing and community based support services for approximately 30 individual adults who have psychiatric disabilities in five separate residences. All referrals come through Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) Adult Mental Health and Addiction Services. Many of our residents have addictions in addition to a mental illness. We address this issue in all our housing projects using a recovery-based psychosocial model. Residents' length of stay is based upon each person's recovery process.
