Making Southern Vancouver Island a better place for everyone.

Changes lives, every day.

When people are at their best—physically, mentally, and emotionally—something powerful happens.

They no longer live in survival mode, figuring out how to get through the day, the week, or the month. Their lives aren’t confined to the limited opportunities surrounding them—rather, they’re searching for new ones.

They’re in a better position to make more positive choices, to offer support to those around them, and ultimately to make their neighbourhoods richer and more rewarding places to live. And when that happens—when that goodness spreads—entire communities can benefit: in health, happiness, and success.

Our work is fueled by dedicated team members, passionate volunteers, generous donors, caring businesses, and hardworking community partners.

From our Board of Directors to our Workplace Cabinet and Leaders Committee, from our CEO to our team members, from our donors and sponsors to our community funded partners, we bring together people who share a common set of values and a common goal: to make a real and meaningful difference in Southern Vancouver Island.
