Location 535 Ellice Street, Victoria, BC, Canada

At Cool Aid, we believe that everyone deserves home, which is why we create hope and opportunities for people who are homeless and living in poverty. We provide affordable housing, emergency shelters, primary health and dental care, nutritious meals, and wellness programs such as recreation, employment and volunteer opportunities. With your support, our staff and volunteers help more than 12,000 people annually at 20 locations in Victoria, Saanich and Langford. We house and support more people who have been homeless in our community than any other organization.
