Our SSVP Coffee & Sandwich Truck serves the homeless of Vancouver's Downtown East Side one evening every week.

The Society's Thrift Stores provide an opportunity for those on limited income to acquire clothing, furniture, and household goods at low or no cost. Proceeds help the poor.
The Main Street Thrift Store also provides emergency food bags of bread and non-perishable food to customers in need.
