Nominations have been closed and our top three nominees have been visited. Thank you for all of your nominations and getting involved in this year’s 8th Charity Paint Give-Away. It was another hard year as there are so many deserving organizations nominated every year. This year we have chosen Pacifica Housing as our winner.  In the coming weeks we will be working with Pacifica Housing to organize a make-over for one of their many housing buildings. The area we will be working on is a place where the people in the building can join together and learn how to eat healthy and live healthy.  By renovating this community hub they hope to utilize the space better and make the most out of what they have. We can’t wait to help them achieve this goal. Pacifica Housing has been helping people in need for over 30 years and has had a huge impact in our community. Not only do they find housing for people in need, they create a supportive environment to help every person be the best they can be. While looking at the community room that we would be painting we were also shown their lovely community garden. Their garden is a place where residents come together to build community and grow fresh vegetables. In addition to providing homes Pacifica offers support services and programs including Virtues Youth Group, community meals, community gardens, art therapy programs and a psychosocial work program. Pacifica Housing provides homes to over 1500 people living in Greater Victoria, Duncan and Nanaimo.
