The Nest

“The Nest” is a 40-unit housing program in Surrey that provides individuals the ability to live an independent yet supported lifestyle. Sixteen of the 40 units are designated as supportive recovery units and are available to those who have recently completed a treatment program and are at risk of homelessness.

Located at 13620 80th Ave., the Nest is a three-storey modular building with 40 studio units, each with a private washroom and kitchen. The building also includes lounge and dining areas, a community garden, health-care space and a commercial kitchen to provide residents three nutritionally balanced meals per day.

Phoenix staff are on site 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. Our team includes a Case Manager, Mental Health Worker, Program Assistants, Peer Support Worker and Program Manager. We are extremely fortunate to have a Sous Chef, Line Cooks and Custodian employed within our building as well.
