Provides a safe, welcoming space for vulnerable individuals experiencing or at-risk of experiencing homelessness. It is a space where people can escape inclement weather, access bathrooms, enjoy light refreshments, access wifi and be connected to other supports. The goal of CONNECT is to help reduce homelessness by providing support and resources to individuals that may assist them in obtaining and maintaining housing.

CVTS partners with Comox Valley Coalition to End Homelessness to operate CONNECT. The centre aims to improve self-sufficiency by providing assisted access to housing opportunities, social connection, literacy and education or volunteer opportunities, referrals to community social service agencies, as well as food and other living supports.

CVTS is a founding member of the Comox Valley Coalition To End Homelessness, which is was established for community partners to work as a collective to plan, coordinate, recommend and implement community responses to homelessness.
