Our Statement of Purpose is: To provide shelter and care for those in need, reflecting the love of God in loving one another.
We have been hands of care in the heart of the island since 1989 through Samaritan House, Nanaimo's only homeless shelter for women; Crescent House, Safe Harbour House and Hirst House (Parksville), which are crisis stabilization homes; and The Bridge which is supportive recovery homes.
Walk with us to show Nanaimo that we care about the homeless and those in crisis!
