Housing is the foundation of our work with individuals, providing supportive and therapeutic environments for recovery
VIMHS provides a variety of housing options for members of our community
Gateway House is a ten-bed, fully staffed and licensed residential facility. It offers a therapeutic, integrative and empowering life skills program that assists individuals to achieve their personal goals.
Bob Currie Place provides eight residents with an enhanced supported semi-independent living (SIL) program. Support workers and a case manager provide on-going support.
K.C. House provides five residents with a SIL program. The residents carry out daily living activities. A case manager and support workers provide support, assistance and encouragement to residents.
VIMHS also operates two independent living facilities, Boundary Crescent and Rosehill Apartments. The Rosehill Apartments building is a four-plex where residents live independently. Its units are subsidized through BC Housing. Boundary Crescent (pictured above) is our newest facility providing 41 furnished, self contained units.
Through a unique partnership with Nanaimo Affordable Housing and Haven Society, VIMHS provides staffed tenant support services at Boundary Crescent for individuals experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. Adults meeting the criteria are eligible to apply for housing.
