The Cridge Centre for the Family is western Canada’s oldest registered non-profit and is proud of its rich heritage. Founders, Bishop Edward Cridge and his wife Mary, came to Victoria as Chaplain of the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1855 . He has been described as Victoria’s first social worker, pioneering many social and cultural causes. Mary took in orphan children which led to the founding of BC Protestant Orphan’s Home in 1873. A generous donor in 1891 enabled us to buy property and build a 100-bed orphanage. In the 1960’s, our organization radically shifted from being an institution which cared for children without families, to an organization that offered support to families. The orphanage was converted to a day care centre and townhomes were built on the property for low-income families. The newly named organization became a community support hub. Since then, we have expanded our services to include transitional housing for women escaping abuse, brain injury services, and seniors’ services. The Cridge Centre for the Family acknowledges with respect the traditional territory of the Lkwungen and W_SANEC peoples, original caretakers of the land on which we serve. We have officially adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and are actively seeking reconciliation with our First Nations’ neighbours. We continue to grow and develop in meeting the ongoing needs of the community as an expression of our Christian faith.
