CAMPBELL VALLEY- HOUSE OF HOPE

 


 

Wagner Hills Farm Society’s Campbell Valley - House of Hope provides 14 beds of supportive transitional housing within three residential houses for women recovering from addictions. House of Hope is located at 460-216th Street in Langley.

 

The three houses underwent interior and exterior renovations that included repairs to fire sprinklers and life safety upgrades, water system treatment, roofing repairs, commercial kitchen safety upgrades, and a septic system extension to the three houses. In total, there are eight bedrooms, four washrooms, a kitchen and two communal living spaces in the three houses.

 

Operations provided by the society will run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with a staff member on site at all times. Campbell Valley - House of Hope is the society’s first women’s facility. Wagner Hills Farm Society also operates a 50-bed facility in Langley called Wagner Hills for men in recovery from addictions.
