PHS Pay it Forward

We are piloting a quarterly “Pay it Forward” promotion to take place every January, April and October to collect proceeds that will go towards wellness programming for our Community Partner, Portland Hotel Society’s Douglas Street Community (DSC).

Heart & Hands clients have the opportunity to donate $2.00 on top of their $20-$50 Community Acupuncture treatment fees. All proceeds will go to the DSC Supportive Recovery Wellness programming. 

By donating, clients will be entered into a draw for

  • One of two session Community Acupuncture passes
  • H&H swag bag
  • H&H ceramic hand dish or mug

Susan Shields, R.Ac., one of our Heart & Hands acupunks provides on-site Community Acupuncture services 2-3 times weekly in conjunction with the Supportive Recovery Wellness programming at the DSC and our homebase at 851 Cormorant St. is excited to provide our client-base the opportunity to pay it forward in benefit of the residents of the facility.

The Douglas Street Community (DSC) provides homes for 25 people on the transitional housing floor and 22 people on the treatment and recovery floor in Victoria, BC. The DSC opened its doors in March 2017.

The Community Supportive Recovery Program at the DSC is a 90-day residential program located in Victoria, BC. We have capacity for up to 22 participants with 24-hour staffing, medication management, daily nursing care, and robust physician support. We provide a supportive and encouraging environment with a blend of holistic programing running 7 days per week. Programs include: Community Acupuncture, yoga, mindfulness meditation, Aboriginal Talking Circle, Art Therapy and creative writing, alongside more traditional programs like 12 STEP, NA and SMART Recovery.
