PHS Community Services Society, is a charitable non-profit on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside and in Victoria.
We provide over 1500 units of supportive housing, harm reduction, and overdose prevention to those underserved in our community.
COVID-19 is challenging everyone in every sector.
PHS Community Services Society will continue our work providing housing, healthcare, harm reduction and health promotion for some of the most vulnerable and under-served people in our community throughout these challenging times.
We will work carefully. We will work with the most up to date science and health guidelines. We will lobby and collaborate to find sector-wide solutions. We will take care of each other.
Our supportive housing is operating its usual year-round service.
We have procedures in place to maximize cleanliness and social distancing, and we are limiting guest and visitor access – only essential visitors such as healthcare providers are being allowed entry.
Our harm reduction and community services are operating around the clock to combat overdoses and provide participant education to heighten community COVID-19 safety awareness.
We will be updating pages of our website with any changes and hours of service that may have been affected with our social enterprise or programs. Please stay tuned here for information as we receive it.
