Our Mission

Silver Threads Service is a charitable, not-for-profit society that enhances social connections and well-being for seniors.  We do this by providing programs and services that are accessible to all.

Our Vision

Seniors in Greater Victoria are engaged and supported, enhancing their quality of life.


Silver Threads Service (STS) is a longstanding non-profit organization with a sterling reputation. Since we opened our doors in 1956, our services, programs and community partnerships have evolved to meet the changing needs of an ever-growing population of older seniors. Silver Threads Service currently operates two senior activity centres with support from the City of Victoria and the Municipality of Saanich. In Victoria the centre is located at 1911 Quadra Street and in Saanich the Les Passmore Centre is located at 286 Hampton Road. As well STS offers outreach programs in various locations across Greater Victoria.

During the COVID – 19 Pandemic Silver Threads Service will provide support to seniors and recommend following the advice of our Government and Health Officials. Stay home, wash your hands and be safe.  While our centres are closed we are providing a Meal Delivery Program, reassurance calls and support for seniors.  We know that isolation has significant health impacts to older adults and this is only multiplied during these tough times.  Our goal is that no one is going hungry and they have some one to call and connect with.  Your donation to help us achieve these goals is very much appreciated.
