Congratulations to this year's recipient of the Victoria Foundation's Community Leadership Award.
The Victoria Cool Aid Society has been building homes, lives and community in the Capital Region since 1968, through a wide range of programs including supportive housing, community health and dental services, emergency shelter, mental health and employment services, and the Downtown Community Centre. Cool Aid focuses its services for adults who are homeless or in need of help and provides assistance to over 10,000 individuals every year. The Society's primary mission is, in partnership with others, to end homelessness in Greater Victoria by 2018, while improving client quality of life.
Hosted by Leadership Victoria, the annual Victoria Leadership Awards (VLAs) showcase the distinguished accomplishments of local heroes for their community volunteerism, dedication and achievement.
