PHS Community Services Society

There is no one to care if you do not care

PHS Community Services Society provides housing, healthcare, harm reduction and health promotion for some of the most vulnerable and under-served people in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and Victoria.  The Portland Hotel Society (renamed PHS Community Services Society in 2003) was founded to provide harm reduction, housing and promote social inclusion and human rights for the most under-served members of society. Since its inception, PHS has developed and delivered innovative programming for people otherwise excluded from services. In 2003, PHS opened Insite, North America’s first legal supervised injection site.
