Give Change this Holiday Season
Making the most of the season. Every year many of us struggle with how to enjoy what we have without wallowing in the consumerism that surrounds us. This is especially challenging when we hear about ever increasing poverty, especially among youth. It’s heart wrenching to imagine young people without a safe place to come home during the holiday season.
This year, give the gift of charity. Please consider making a donation as an alternative to a traditional gift of goods to those your care about. To make a donation this year in another’s name, donate by credit card or cheque to Threshold Housing Society. Your donation ensures that Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable youth have a safe place to call home this holiday season and every season of the year. Make sure to indicate the name of the individual on whose behalf you are making the donation and we will send them a thank you card indicating that a donation was made in their name.
“Yeah, if it weren’t for Threshold, I wouldn’t really have anywhere to be. Like no foster homes, I’m not allowed to rent my own apartment yet. I wouldn’t have anywhere to go. … It’s just perfect. And I’m really happy I managed to get into Threshold.”

It doesn’t take much to make a difference! Please considering texting SAFE to 20222 to donate $5 or $20 through your phone. It may just be the price of a coffee, but it makes more difference than you can know. Together, everyone taking tiny steps we can create big change in the lives of our most vulnerable youth. Providing safe housing, life skills to grow with, and support to move forward to independence.
