Victory House

The Bloom Group Community Services Society
353 East Cordova Street, Vancouver
Wood Frame
New Construction

Terra worked with the Bloom Group (formerly St. James Community Service Society) to complete this project, which was a replacement facility for a residential program that had been run out of the Victory Hotel (an outdated and inadequate SRO condemned by the City).  Victory House provides housing for men and women who suffer from chronic mental illness.  Greater Vancouver Mental Health Services funds 24 hour services and care, including a commercial kitchen and nursing staff.  Residents are encouraged to live as independently as possible and to participate in the running of their home.  There are a variety of resident programs at Victory House including camping, art, music, and physical activities.
