Ready or Not in 2023

Red, green, and black text reads 2023 edition Ready or Not Aging Out of Care

For the last several years, Threshold has focused in the spring on sharing the facts around youth aging out of government care on their 19th birthday. The late Katherine McParland, a leading youth housing advocate, once deemed aging out of care the “superhighway into homelessness” – a term that has proliferated. In the past three years, however, the government of BC has announced multiple funding and policy changes aimed at either creating off-ramps from that highway or relieving the housing crisis.

Giving for good: the Forster’s story

This past November, we had the honour and delight to announce a $3.1 million gift from Carole and Clint Forster, facilitated by the Victoria Foundation and RBC Phillips Hager & North Investment Counsel. That gift has been a booster pack in Threshold’s ability to provide safe homes where youth can create brighter futures. The following video captures both our gratitude, and a little more of the Forster’s story.
