Lookout Housing and Health Society is a charitable organization and social safety net.

We provide housing and a range of support services to adults with low or no income who have few, if any, housing or support options. Because the people we serve have challenges meeting basic needs and goals, we place minimal barriers between them and our services.

Our services and housing operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to men and women requiring assistance.

We serve 14 municipalities in BC, including Vancouver, Victoria, Surrey, New Westminster, the North Shore, Burnaby, Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission and Maple Ridge.

We provide non-judgemental, non-sectarian services to adults coping with a wide variety of challenges.

Jackie and Bernadette’s Fundraiser for Relief in the DTES


Jackie and Bernadette saw the problems of the Downtown East Side chronically exacerbated by the impact of Covid 19. Both laid off at the beginning of the shutdown, they decided to use their time doing something to help their community. Jackie has worked and volunteered on the DTES for many years and knew that the Lookout Society was best placed to provide help.

Many people have been affected by COVID-19 but perhaps none more than the marginalized population living in Vancouver’s DTES. The Lookout Society is providing immediate help to help keep the most vulnerable members of our community safe and well through this crisis.

Stand by Me: A Tribute to Djaeff Mahler – An Online Concert Fundraiser


Djaeff Mahler was a talented and prolific artist well known in the Vancouver and Toronto art worlds who was committed to supporting people who living with HIV/AIDS.

The family requests that donations be made to Lookout’s Djaeff Mahler Food Bank.

Named in his memory, the food bank provides protein-rich food baskets to individuals and families who live with HIV/AIDS or HepC. Lookout works with people who lack access to HIV/AIDS and HCV support services through advocacy, outreach, peer training and harm reduction programs.
