The support may include childcare, work training, life skills, emergency relief, vouchers for household goods and workshops and referrals.

This building receives no ongoing funding from BC Housing and the tenant support is funded through donations from the community and the Society programs. When a vacancy occurs in the one-bedroom units the vacancy is filled locally. When a vacancy occurs in the family units the support worker in Rosalie's will reach out to referral agencies in Victoria and request applications.
The shelter units are managed by Burnside Gorge Community Centre. The Society provides the property management for these units and Burnside Gorge provides the support, intake and exit.
