Welcome to the Cridge Centre
Who do you turn to when you need help? For many people, their vulnerability comes from not having a circle of caring people around them to help out in times of need. Whether it is Jenna, fleeing an abusive relationship, or Mike, not sure where to turn after a brain injury and the loss of his job, or Fahad and Mara, newly arrived in Canada as refugees, all these individuals and families just need a place to land, people to help them and the chance to find hope and safety.
The Cridge Centre for the Family has been providing hope and support for vulnerable people since 1873. We have a legacy of love and care that has stretched over generations, across cultural barriers and into the darkest places. You’ll find us in a number of locations in Greater Victoria, and our services span every age, ability and walk of life.
Over the past 145 years, we have been carefully nurturing our community. We believe that by supporting those who are vulnerable and in need, we are growing a stronger community, one precious life at a time. We invite you to join us!
Operated under the distinguished patronage of Her Honour, The Honourable Janet Austin, OBC, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. Read more here.
