Sooke Shelter Society was incorporated in August, 2018. Sooke Shelter is a grassroots charity working together to increase access to affordable housing for those with lower-income, to prevent and end homelessness in Sooke, BC.
We believe that safe, decent, affordable housing benefits the entire community – economically, socially, and environmentally.
Through advocacy, we raise awareness of the critical value of stable, affordable housing to people’s education, employment, health, and overall wellbeing.
