Safe at Home with Pride, running from June 1 – July 15, is one of the most significant campaigns in the Threshold year. With youth on the sexual orientation and gender identity spectrums massively over-represented in youth homelessness, Pride season is a prime opportunity for Threshold to show the community and our youth that we create safe spaces, that they belong, and that we celebrate them.
On July 8th we participated in the Pride parade!

HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE!
Threshold Housing is having a holiday open house!
We want to give our community a chance to get to know us better. If you are unfamiliar with the work we do this is a great opportunity to learn more, by meeting our staff and visiting our space. For those who know us we welcome you to come view our new office!
This is also the perfect moment to connect, mingle, and get to know other service providers in our community that work directly with youth.
Join Threshold Housing for a Tree Lighting Ceremony in Bastion Square to Shine A Light On Youth! Our goal is to light the largest tree in Bastion Square with 10,000 lights. There will be live music, the radio station Ocean 98.5, and free hot chocolate! This will take place on November 25th from 1-4pm! We encourage everyone to come down with their friends and family to gather and let youth in this region know that there is a community supporting them!
We will have Victoria’s Mayor Lisa Helps ‘flip the switch’ to turn on the lights at 4pm!
If you want to get more involved – We are asking members of our community to make a donation and buy a light to support programming that helps prevent youth from becoming homeless. For every $10 donation a bulb will be lit on the tree. We hope to sell 10-thousand bulbs before November 25th. These funds will assist us in providing transitional programming and affordable, safe and secure housing for youth who are at risk of becoming homeless. Help Shine A Light on Youth Today!
