About ICCS Oceanside/​Parksville

Since 2015, funds raised through the Oceanside CNOY event have allowed us to continue to offer support through the Oceanside Outreach program, in association with the HOST (Homelessness Outreach Support Team).


HOST helps Oceanside residents find affordable housing, receive rent subsidies and then supports the clients to maintain their housing. In some cases, ICCS holds the lease with the landlord, strengthening our commitment to success for these clients. In order to provide needed support 7 days/week, ICCS has committed to providing outreach coverage on weekends to clients in need.


When you support CNOY in Oceanside, you are supporting this important resource in our community!
