ICCS is a registered non-profit society that helps people in crisis stabilize and then find the support, resources, and services they need to recover and be well. We work in cooperation with Provincial and Federal agencies, community groups, and faith-based organizations to develop housing options and programs that respect the needs of individuals with multiple challenges or concurrent disorders.

Together with professionals in the social service field we created Crescent House which has become a model used by communities throughout BC. This successful model provides a short term “oasis in the storm” where individuals can rest and recover before they move to independent living or other forms of housing.

Our Vision is: “To provide shelter and care for those in need, reflecting the love of God in loving one another.” We have been hands of care in the heart of the island since 1989.
