*Special Announcement* Our 12 days of Silk Road tea gift boxes are back and…. We are so excited to announce that this year you can go into any of the 7 CountryGrocer locations on Vancouver Island to purchase your tea box!!! All proceeds will be coming to Threshold Housing and will help us ⭐ Shine a Light on Youth Homelessness ⭐. We are honoured to be partnering with the amazing team at CountryGrocer and want to give them a massive shoutout for helping us support the youth we serve.


It’s that time! ⭐Threshold Housing is Shining a Light on Youth Homelessness from November 1st, 2021 to December 31st, 2021⭐ We believe that every youth in our community deserves a safe place to call home — to find sanctuary and acceptance. Your support can help provide at-risk youth with a safe home and a strong support network that can change the trajectory of their life, and even have a generational impact on their family. By supporting at-risk youth, you are helping prevent future adult homelessness. During this time, we will be raising funds to help us continue to provide safe homes and brighter futures to at-risk youth and raise awareness about youth homelessness.


Thank you!

On behalf of our entire team at Threshold Housing Society, we want to say thank you so much for the generosity and support you have shown us. October is donor appreciation month at Threshold.

We celebrate our donors, people like you, in the month of October to show our deep appreciation and gratitude for all your support.

Please enjoy this video we created to express our sincere gratitude.


We sat down with Sylvia Parke to learn more about her and her new position in the Supportive Recovery Program.

What is your name and role at Threshold Housing:

My name is Sylvia and I am the Cultural Wellness Worker in the Supportive Recovery Program at Threshold Housing.

My English name is Sylvia, my Haida name is ‘7stil aa yaa’ which translates into ‘always doing something.’ I am from the Haida nation on my Mother’s side, from the Saangaalth Stas’stas Eagle clan of Old Massett Village, Haida Gwaii. My Naanii (granmother) was Sylvia Storry (Kelly), oldest daughter of Godfrey and Victoria Kelly (Edenshaw). I am a grateful visitor on the unceded territory of the Lkwungen and Wsanec speaking people.

Who does your role support?

I mainly support Indigenous identifying youth in the Supportive Recovery Program.


We want to thank the lovely people at The Rotary Club of Oak Bay for putting together this incredible fundraiser.
In order to make the education dreams of the youth at Threshold Housing a reality, the Rotary Club is now able to offer a matching donation program until July 31, 2021.


We are so happy to announce our newest acquisition to the Threshold Housing Society group of homes. This beautiful heritage home enables us to expand our mission of providing safe housing, support services, and community to the at-risk youth we serve. Everything we do here at Threshold is focused on impacting the long-term trajectory of young people’s lives. This is one more step moving us closer to our vision of a community where all youth thrive. Please join us in celebrating this new home in our community where young people will find safety and healing for decades to come.
