Ksan takes its name from a First Nations word meaning people of the river of mist – the river of mist being the Skeena River. Ksan House Society has been providing services to the community for over 30 years.
We believe in the inherent value of every human being. We are committed to responding to community need. We empower, assist and support people experiencing gender violence, violence, poverty, homelessness and other forms of oppression/marginalization.
In all our programs we seek to empower the people that utilize our services to enable them to make positive choices in their lives.
