Shelter for all
We must not let them fall
Sooke Shelter Society is a grassroots Registered Charity working together to increase access to affordable housing for those with lower income, to prevent and end homelessness in Sooke, BC. Through advocacy, we raise awareness of the critical value of stable, affordable housing to people’s education, employment, health, and overall well-being.
Sooke Shelter Society offers shelter and temporary outdoor survival shelter gear for those experiencing homelessness in the Greater Sooke Area. Support is provided for people over 18 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in need of immediate basic necessities such as food, clothing, and outdoor living supplies and or have self-identified as engaging in substance use, are having challenges accessing housing or have mental health concerns.
We connect with our most vulnerable, approaching each person with compassion, empathy and understanding, treating all with dignity, respect, fairness and equality.
We care about our community and believe that safe, decent, affordable housing benefits the entire community – economically, socially, and environmentally.
As part of our community housing strategy, we need a rights-based national housing strategy that is also adequately funded and is developed in consultation with all levels of government to ensure that everyone has the right to secure, adequate and affordable housing.
