This week is Mental Health week and we have asked our staff members to demonstrate how they ‘practice what they preach’ when it comes to prioritizing their mental health! It is important that we treat our mental health as well as we do our physical health. Which means taking time every day or as often as we can to do something that makes our mental health feel even stronger. Whether it means we take naps, get our hair done, spend time with our family, go on barefoot adventures, or start our day with a fresh cup of coffee! #GetLoud with us and show us how you take care of your mental health! #MentalHealthWeek
The lovely staff from Saasquatch (Cassidy, Steph, and Pat) presented Jody Yurkowsky-Pace the program director and Jasmine Nagra the fundraising assistant at Threshold Housing with a cheque for $8300. We are so grateful for Saasquatch for choosing Threshold Housing Society as their charity of choice for their annual Cutthroat Gaming fundraiser! We loved working with this team and we can’t wait to work with them again in the future. #WeLoveOurCommunity #YouthMatter

We are so excited to finally post photos of our newly painted office! We are so happy with how the colours turned out and with the work White Knight did. Not only do these colours get us more excited for spring but we have created a positive and welcoming space that youth can feel welcome to enjoy everyday! We want to thank the incredible team at White Knight for choosing us at their charity of choice but for also doing a great job. We truly enjoyed having the White Knight team around! We can’t believe how quickly they were able to transform our office.
Join us on Wednesday March 28th at 7pm at the Victoria Public Market to watch Rain Man. Movie Night at the Market is by donation with all proceeds going to Threshold Housing. We want to thank the Victoria Public Market for choosing Threshold Housing as their charity of choice for this Movie Night! To read more about this night click here.
Hope to see you all there! #WeLoveOurCommunity #YouthMatter
We are so excited to announce… that we have won the White Knight Painting 10th Annual Charity Paint Giveaway! We want to thank each and every person who nominated us and helped us spread the word. We also want to thank White Knight for choosing us and helping us create an office space that allows us to represent who Threshold is.
If you are interested in reading more about the White Knight Charity Paint Giveaway or looking at the ‘before’ photos of our office please click here.
Thanks to all of your support we are the top 3 finalists in the White Knight Painting contest! We are so close to having our office painted and creating a space that will motivate youth to drop by for programming. Our office not only serves a purpose for our staff members but it is a space that we encourage youth to come into to work on and accomplish their goals. It is difficult to give youth a warm welcome with a cold and uninviting office to come into. It is not too late to continue letting White Knight Painting know why they should choose Threshold Housing.
If you would like to see the other two top finalists in the White Knight Painting contest click here. We do understand how difficult this is going to be for White Knight Painting to choose as the other two finalists are very deserving as well!
Thank you so much to Sylvia Campbell & Colin Booth from St. Aidan’s United Church for the generous donation from the Thrift Shop at St. Aidan’s. This donation will go towards our programming and will allow us to continue creating more opportunities for youth! #YouthMatter #WeLoveOurCommunity
