recovery centerWe are excited to announce a new program to be offered by Island Crisis Care Society, the Supportive Recovery Project opening July 2024.

Through our decades of experiencing working with those in need, we know that recovery is not something that is typically achievable in just a few months. Many people need time to rebuild positive habits, healthy relationships and work on their mental and physical health once they have physically detoxed. This is where Supportive Recovery can play a vital role in someone’s journey. Clients of the Supportive Recovery Project will be provided stable housing, nutritious food, mental health resources, tools that support greater resiliency and strength, and individualized support plans for up to 18 months. Recognizing that the cost for such vital programs typically presents a significant barrier for people to access services, space at the Supportive Recovery Project will be accessible to everyone.

We are thankful for funding secured through the CMHA Bed-Based Treatment & Recovery Grant to successfully equip a large part of the Supportive Recovery Project. Even with their support, we still have a lot to accomplish.

Ways that you can help!

We have a goal of raising another $50,000 before our official opening by July 15th, 2024. We would like you to consider a monetary or in-kind donation to our Recovery Project Campaign to help those in need. All donations valued at $500 or more and received by July 15th, 2024 will have the opportunity to be acknowledged on the Donor Recognition Panel.

Due to the unexpected and substantial flooding of our building at 2025 Bowen Road in January 2024, we had to pivot our plans on the project location. We are currently looking for a house (minimum 4 bedrooms) to rent in Nanaimo. If you have a location available, please contact Corrie,

If you would like to purchase start up items for the project, please check out our Amazon Wishlist. If you would like to discuss specific items for an in-kind donation, please contact our Resource Development Coordinator, Jennifer, at 250-585-5505 or by email

This project’s success will also come from the support of community volunteers, who will participate in various roles. We are looking for people who have interests in cooking, crafting, art, gardening just to name a few. If you feel that you would like to connect with clients and have a positive impact on their journey to living well, we would love to hear from you. Please fill out the volunteer application form to start the process today.
