Threshold Housing Society

OUR VISION:  Greater Victoria at-risk youth confidently fulfilling their potential.

OUR MISSION:  Threshold Housing Society helps at-risk youth attain independence and self-reliance through supportive transitional housing.

OUR MANDATE:  To provide a transitional housing program for youth at risk of homelessness.  Our semi-independent transitional houses and supported independent program (SHY) offer stability for school completion, work training, and employment. To augment the experience of being safely housed, Threshold also provides an innovative life-skills program called “Self-Worthshops” and transitional planning to connect youth with community resources to assist them in achieving their goals.

Threshold exists to serve youth from across Vancouver Island through supported independent living. Providing positive role models and constructive support helps youth in our community navigate the challenges of school, work, relationships and life. Many of these young people just need someone to believe in them.


Mitchell House is a home where young men are given the chance to gain valuable life skills and grow towards working or getting an education with the support of Threshold staff. Stability in knowing there’s a roof over their head means they can concentrate on the next steps toward independence. Read more


Holly House is a place where young women are able to escape intolerable living circumstances and unhealthy relationships. Here, they are able to get the care and support they need to succeed in work and school while moving towards a bright, independent adulthood. Read more


With the help of our community, the Safe Housing for Youth (SHY) Program connects vulnerable youth with stable and affordable housing. Learn how you can become a SHY landlord
