Impact Statement VICTORIA COOL AID SOCIETY

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.

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.
