On this week’s segment of Road to Recovery with Douglas Magazine, CHEK’s Hannah Lepine chats with Corrie Corfield, the assistant executive director of the Island Crisis Care Society about its recent purchase of a bakery and how this kind of social enterprise could be the way forward.

In the middle of the pandemic, the Island Crisis Care Society purchased the Nanaimo Bakery and Confectionary with the goal of providing employment experience for its clients and using its profits to fund its programs.

The society’s programs include supportive housing facilities, transitional housing for women, emergency shelter for women, outreach, assisted living for those with mental health issues, a recovery house and sobering and assessment beds.

Road to Recovery is done in partnership with Douglas Magazine.
