Celebrating REALTORS® Care week with Threshold Housing Society
It’s REALTORS® Care week! The Victoria Real Estate Board is celebrating with a donation on behalf of Victoria REALTORS® to Threshold Housing Society. The Board has made a $17,000 donation to Threshold to subsidize three rental units for safe and affordable homes for local youth.
“The work that the Threshold Housing Society does is vitally important and we are proud to support their efforts,” says Board President David Langlois. “There is no better social investment than helping our youth transition into adulthood with support and care, with secure housing and lifeskills training. Creating a secure foundation for at risk youth provides a pathway for success in life, which makes us all better. We encourage other individuals and organizations to support the Threshold Housing Society.”
Help Shine a Light on Youth homelessness
This November, Threshold Housing Society is shining a light on youth homelessness. Threshold believe that every youth in our community deserves a safe place to call home — to find sanctuary and acceptance. Your support can help provide at-risk youth with a safe home and a strong support network that can change the trajectory of their life, and even have a generational impact on their family. By supporting at-risk youth, you are helping prevent future adult homelessness.
