Lookout Housing and Health Society provides minimum barrier housing and health services to vulnerable adults who live with a wide variety of challenges that include extreme poverty, mental health, chronic illness, mobility issues, substance use, and trauma. Making a financial gift to Lookout is a wise social investment. This year Lookout was named as one of Canada'a Top 100 Charities in Canada by Maclean's Magazine (based on Charity Intelligence Canada ratings). We are one of just ten charities in BC found to excel in financial transparency, cost-efficiency and accountability. Lookout currently operates more than 95 programs across 41 different sites in 14 communities across Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island. Every night we house up to 1,528 vulnerable people through our shelters, transitional, supportive, and social housing while our outreach, health, mental health and other programs reach another 1,250 individuals every day. Lookout focuses on positive outcomes, going beyond traditional solutions by fostering growth and change through innovative service delivery and collaborative partnerships. Our goal is to assist individuals to move towards stable housing and wellness.
