Hope Centre is a joint venture between the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul of Vancouver Island (SSVP) and the M’akola Group of Societies (M’akola). It came about when the groups identified a need in Sooke to provide affordable housing for aboriginal and non-aboriginal homeless singles (both men and women), including provisions for youth.
Housing and services for those experiencing homelessness in the Capital Region are primarily focused in downtown Victoria. There is great demand in Sooke for affordable housing – especially for youth who have few local resources or supports.
The Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) provides a range of programs and services to address the unique needs of military members and their families. We offer some programs in the Sooke Region directly.
