Anawim in our community

Jim Ross has over 37 years experience as a sales manager, business owner, board member and President and CEO of DSL Inc., a food equipment supply company servicing western Canada. When retirement brought him to Vancouver Island, he became a Rotarian with South Cowichan Rotary Club.  Involved in several projects in the Cowichan Valley, Jim also became a Paul Harris Fellow.  Since moving to Victoria he has chaired his strate council and since 2015, he has sat on the Board of the Anawim Companions Society.

Anawim House is a safe, substance-free home and gathering place for Victoria’s street community.

For 27 years, Anawim House has offered a residential recovery house for men and daytime services for both men and women, including meals, showers, laundry, clothing, counselling and help with their day- to-day needs.  

What makes them different from other services for Victoria’s poor and homeless? They offer more than a handout; they offer the chance for lasting change—whether that means freedom from addiction, reconnecting with loved ones, moving into housing, going back to school, or finding work or a home.  Unlike similar services, they offer more than harm reduction. They offer a family environment where people can recover their dignity and self- worth, and break free of isolation, addiction, and past trauma.

Anawim House is a place where people can contribute and build lasting relationships as members of a loving family. It is a safe place where people can thrive, not just survive. Anawim works with people to rebuild their physical, emotional, and spiritual health and set new goals for themselves.
