Christmas at The Lighthouse

Thank You Anawim House!

TWC Vancouver Island Representative Trevor Franklin has started a tradition of purchasing a Christmas tree for TWC’s Lighthouse transitional home in Victoria every year. The past four years, Trevor has been going down to the Anawim House in Victoria during their annual Christmas Tree Sale.

Trevor and Anawim’s Director, Terry Edison-Brown, have established a relationship built around helping those who struggle with addiction. The Anawim House provides day programs, residential programs and outreach services for men and women at need. Each year, Anawim House serves more than 13,500 meals, approximately 35,000 cups of coffee and provides 1,800 showers and loads of laundry to those in need.

Together We Can’s Lighthouse Residence on the Island is a great stepping stone for men transitioning out of residential treatment programs. A safe, supported living situation around like-minded individuals in recovery provides an ideal platform for continued growth.

The Lighthouse on Quadra is located in downtown Victoria and is within walking distance of over twenty different recovery based meetings. It is also in close proximity to the Crystal Pool Recreation Centre where clients can participate in a variety of athletic activities and workshops within the community.

The Lighthouse ensures that TWC clients returning to the Island, or men from other recovery programs, have a safe and stable environment to call home. The house itself is a spacious, inviting space for clients to grow and succeed in recovery.
