We want youth to feel safe and valued, and we have people and resources available. If you, or someone you know, need housing and support, fill out an application or contact us to find out how we can help.
Threshold Housing Society provides housing support to youth at risk of homelessness. Our services are available to youth aged 15 – 24 in Greater Victoria.
Threshold’s congregate supportive homes provide high-ratio, 24/7 staff support in a welcoming home environment. Youth have their own spacious bedrooms and share common spaces such as bathrooms, living room, and kitchen. All of our shared homes also have outdoor space with gardens, grass, and places to relax.
Wrap-around support programs are offered both within these home, in other Threshold homes, and in the community, ensuring that youth have a broad connection to community.
Threshold House is both our flagship home and the heart of our wrap-around Foundations Program.
Purpose built for semi-independent living, Threshold House offers youth their own studio suites – with a large bedroom, kitchenette, and full bathroom – connected to generous shared living room, kitchen and dining room.
Many wrap-around support programs, for example bi-weekly cooking groups and a weekly art club, take place at Threshold House.
Scattered throughout Greater Victoria, SHY apartments offer supported independence for those youth who are ready to live on their own.
Support services come to the youth as needed, rather than being attached to the housing. Youth in SHY apartments have full access to Threshold’s many wrap-around supports.
Threshold Housing also offers the Supportive Recovery Program, a residential program for youth who want to reduce their substance use. Learn more about the Supportive Recovery Program.
