How You Can Help

Everyone can help make our community a more welcoming and caring place. The experiences, skills, talents or resources that you are able to share can make a real difference in peoples’ lives.

Ways to give


We need your help. If addiction has touched you or your family, please consider a donation, large or small. (Tax receipts are issued for any donation of $20.00 or more.) 

Lend your voice and energy to this unique and growing organization in Victoria.

Share your understanding

This year across Canada, more than ten thousand people will die as a direct result of substance use.  Many more will have their quality of life severely compromised by addiction and mental illness.  Yet few people in our community know much about these issues, or understand how they can help.  Educating others is one of our primary purposes.
