Impact Statement: VICTORIA COOL AID SOCIETY

Homelessness touches many lives at a significant cost to communities. The Cool Aid Society has been a key player in the work to end homelessness in the Capital Region for decades and, with your help, is developing 360 more apartments for people who are currently homeless.

Volunteers run many of our programs here at Rock Bay Landing (RBL). Without their time, our clients would be unable to access computer services, hygiene services, clothing and other donations. The time given to us by our volunteers is immeasurably valuable and we appreciate every moment of it.
Description: Are you a certified yoga teacher? Do you like giving back to the community? Do you believe in the holistic benefits of yoga and meditative practice?
Here at RBL we have need for yoga instructors to restart our yoga program.
Yoga benefits our clients by allowing them to relax and focus for a small period of time. Many studies show that yoga can help decrease stress and effectively treat trauma. Yoga also decreases depression and anxiety, and it improves mood.
We would love to be able to offer yoga a few times a week to our clientele.
