Our Mission

PHS Community Services Society strives to develop, maintain and promote affordable housing for adult individuals who are poorly served elsewhere in the community due to their physical health, mental health, behavioural issues, substance dependencies, forensic history, and for those who are homeless. All of our operations aim to foster a sense of community, encouraging members to accept and support one another while empowering them to determine their own course of recovery.
