Don McTavish, Residential Services

Don McTavish, Emergency Shelter ServicesDon has worked with the Victoria Cool Aid Society for 17 years, during which time he has been dedicated to the provision of housing and shelter for those most marginalized in our community.

Don is the Director of Residential Services and it was in this role that he was part of the team that envisioned and planned the purpose-built Rock Bay Landing facility that offers 84 shelter beds, 23 units of transitional housing (known as the Next Steps program) and two units of family shelter (the only ones in the Capital Region District). HeĀ  oversees all of Cool Aid’s shelters and housing programs, leading staff as they work together so that no one forced to sleep on the street or go hungry.

Don works closely with other agencies in this city dedicated to the elimination of homelessness.
