Homeless Shelter Society, Did fund raising for a homeless shelter and a drug and alcohol rehab... Raised $113 000

The Society looked for other sources of funding and was unsuccessful, When the Salvation Army had a visioning weekend they decided that they would like to take on the homeless shelter part of our society's mission.

Representatives from Wagner Hills in Langley had come up to Fort St John, saying that they would have a team trained and ready to begin a Christian Drug and Alcohol Rehab. here in Fort St John if they found support in the area.


The Homeless Shelter Society then made the decision to dissolve, and gave 100,000 dollars to the Salvation Army to renovate and expand their existing shelter. The remaining funds were given to the newly formed S.C.A.R.S (Shelter with Chemical and Alcohol Rehabilitation Services Society) which would carry the drug and alcohol rehab portion of the mission. In July of that year SCARS received the team of leaders from Wagner Hills to begin this new ministry for men in a house one mile east of the airport.


The SCARS society purchased a modular home to move in beside the existing house. This allowed for growth, and more privacy for staff.


Knowing that we needed land on which to eventually build a more suited building, we applied and were successful in receiving a 99 year lease on 8 acres, just north of the Peace Vale Farm yard.


We developed the access road for the new property, and cleared the trees for the Hydro lines.


We have cleared top soil for the building area, extended road and lagoon, with further plans in the fall to complete the road, and dig the lagoon. We are preparing for a name change to be unveiled at the November 1st Gala.


Dug the lagoon, power shed, and began hydro development. Closed men’s facility temporarily due to lack of staff. Renovated house and prayed for direction. From many unrelated sources the suggestion came to change from a men’s facility to a women’s facility. With willing staff we opened to receive women October of 2014.


Goal for fall to gravel road, complete hydro, and sewer hook up, and put the first cottage in place.
