Why Warmland House?

There are some days where what you need is a warm house. Not everyone has access to this, and some people need someone to be with them. Warmland House provides a safe, supportive environment, as well as support services for people who are also trying to cope with other life challenges. They provide a 30-bed emergency shelter for those who need help meeting their basic needs. They also provide 24 transitional housing studio apartments for those who can live on their own but could use support and assistance in stabilizing their lifestyle. There is also a day-use common area with showers and laundry, lockers, a resource room, a commercial kitchen and dining area, and a community garden. An extreme weather shelter provides shelter to homeless people when the weather conditions are deemed severe enough to present a threat to their life.

While people are staying at Warmland House support is provided in areas like safety, mental health, financial and legal aid, life skills, and more. These support services are also available to homeless people in the Cowichan Valley. Tenants and shelter users also have access to a Nurse Practitioner and Chiropractor. On the third Tuesday of every month a Foot Care Clinic runs, and a healthy lunch is included.
