Keys: Housing & Health Solutions
Keys: Housing and Health Solutions Society (Keys), formerly South Fraser Community Services Society is a non-profit organization providing services to our region's most vulnerable populations.
The mission of the Society is to offer all persons within the community the opportunity to maximize their potential, through provision of services and support when required or requested. All persons will be treated with dignity and respect regardless of age, gender, race, culture, class, sexual orientation, religious belief or any other discriminatory reason.
Keys: Housing and Health Solutions operates programming that has been in the community for 20 years, seeing up to 350 of the most vulnerable individuals everyday. We have several locations in Surrey.
After 20 years, Keys delivers nineteen programs, covering two areas of service: Health Solutions and Homeless Solutions.
The Health Solutions portfolio encompasses a free medical clinic, non profit dental clinic, an onsite six-unit low-cost housing facility, women specific programming, a high-protein supplemental food bank, a community garden and a support lounge for individuals infected and affected with blood-borne pathogens including HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis. These services are funded by a contract through the Fraser Health Authority, Public Health Agency of Canada and through generous community donations and volunteers.
The Homeless Solutions offers a twenty-four hour drop-in facility and a year-round 40-bed homeless shelter. We also operate a daily meal program, outreach, corrections support, a housing program, and a referral program for disadvantaged youth and a ten bed male second stage recovery facility. This portion of the Society’s programming is primarily funded through BC Housing contracts, Ministry of Social Development and SFCS Foundation
