Since being founded in 1991 to support 70 units of housing in a run down single room occupancy hotel at the corner of Carrall and Hastings the PHS Community Services Society has grown to meet the diverse and complex needs of residents of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Twenty years later the organization now provides over 30 different services ranging from low barrier housing to drop in centres, a supervised injection site and detox, coffee shops to a savings bank, food programs, social enterprises, mobile health care services, community gardens, and an art gallery.
