About ICCS Nanaimo

As ICCS, our aim is: To provide shelter and care for those in need.


Through housing and outreach programs, we help people in crisis stabilize and find the support, resources and services they need to recover and be well. Currently, we run 13 programs across 8 sites for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. We also provide Outreach support and access to subsidized housing – all intended to support clients to move from crisis to security, independence and well-being. Our programs range from crisis shelter, through longer term supportive housing, to life skills and pre-employment training to help people return to independence in the community.


Walk with us to show Nanaimo that we care about our community!
