More than 75 years ago The Salvation Army opened Dunsmuir House (located at 500 Dunsmuir) for men in the heart of Vancouver and began its journey to be a transforming influence in the community.
In September 2004, we moved to a new location (555 Homer), which was built as a multi-service centre, and renamed Belkin House.
This state-of-the-art facility provides a home to the homeless and those who are at risk of homelessness. It’s a place of healing where men women and children fight against homelessness, hunger and despair. Belkin House reaches out to help people whose lives are battered and broken. Our innovative and unique programs are offered to help residents become well, whole and healed.
Belkin House hosts a variety of residential programs and houses up to 225 men, women and children. We provide a clean, safe, secure, and comfortable accommodation for those who have come down on hard times.
BELKIN HOUSE IS …
– A STATE-OF-THE-ART RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM FACILITY IN THE HEART OF VANCOUVER DEDICATED TO “BREAKING BARRIERS – TRANSFORMING LIVES”.
– A PLACE OF HEALING, WHERE FAITH AND COMPASSION OVERCOMES HOMELESSNESS, HUNGER, AND DISPAIR.
– A PLACE WHERE ORDINARY INDIVIDUALS ACCOMPLISH HEROIC THINGS EVERY DAY.
– A PLACE WHERE WE HAVE BEEN COMMISSIONED TO CARE FOR AND HELP INDIVIDUALS DISCOVER THEMSELVES, UNDERSTAND THEIR PURPOSE, AND FIND THEIR SELF WORTH.
