Our team at Threshold Housing wants to thank our community for the support we received in 2017. We want to thank all the people who helped us with our Shine a Light on Youth campaign during the months of November and December. From generous donors to all the individuals who showed up on event day and helped us make it a special day! We have posted photos from the Shine a Light on Youth event on November 25th when we lit up the tree in Bastion Square on our social media accounts. (Photos are also posted at the end of this post)
For daily updates please follow our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages @THSVic.
We also want to thank the businesses and organizations in our community who helped us create more opportunities for youth in 2017. With the help of these businesses we are able to offer youth programming that is based off their interests. This allows youth to feel empowered and motivated to succeed. We also could not do this work without the fundraisers that are held for us. Thank you to the organizers of these events as well as the people who continuously support us by attending these events. We were also able to make the holidays special for the youth in 2017 with the help from generous community members and Coast Capital Savings. We are not able to make Threshold a home for youth without the support from our community. We truly believe it takes a village.

The tree we lit up with 10,000 lights to Shine a Light on Youth. The goal of this Christmas Campaign was to highlight the need for youth housing. Each light is a sign of hope to homeless youth in Greater Victoria that darkness will give way to light in a community that cares for and cherishes its youth.
