About CMHA Cowichan Valley

CMHA-Cowichan Valley Branch facilitates access to the resources people require to maintain and improve mental health and community integration, build resilience, and support recovery from mental illness and addiction. During Coldest Night of the Year, we are raising funds to create a safe space and programming for homeless youth.


The Cowichan Valley has an estimated 300+ individuals that are unhoused, precariously housed (couch surfing, living in vehicles). As housing becomes more scarce and less affordable, these numbers are increasing. Many of those individuals are youth. At a time in their lives when they need stability, direction and support, they have none. Some have left foster care or unhealthy family situations, some have disabilities and many have trauma we can't imagine.


How can we help?

We can start by providing a safe place for youth to drop in. We can start by listening while we provide the basics such as a warm meal, medical attention, a warm shower and some clean clothes. We can learn about what they need and direct them to other resources in the community. In a perfect world, we could provide shelter or at the very least a referral to shelter. We can provide the vital connection needed to change the course of their lives.
