Cool Aid works toward the vision of a community where no one is forced to sleep on the street or go hungry and everyone has the dignity that comes with home, health and connection. More than 300 Cool Aid employees work in Victoria, Saanich and Langford providing homes, shelter, health care and other services to vulnerable residents.
