Letters: Hope Centre will be for community

New centre in Sooke seeking tenants for shared spaces

Opening in September, the new Hope Centre Building at 6750 West Coast Rd. in Sooke promises to be a great asset for the entire community. Offering subsidized housing to the community, the new building is starting to become a local community hub. St. Vincent de Paul will open its new store on the main floor. The Sooke Commons Educational and Training facility will be the focus of the third floor. And a new wellness centre, with a community yoga studio, will be located on the second floor.

The proposed wellness centre will be a shared space where practitioners and therapists can rent space on an hourly, part day, full day or weekly basis. There will be consulting rooms to offer individual treatments and a studio space to offer classes to small groups or host group events. The wellness centre will give local practitioners an opportunity to share their gifts with the entire community without having to take on the major expense and risk of renting their own individual space.

The wellness facility includes treatment rooms, a seating area, an outdoor balcony and a studio area with access to an even larger studio. The facility will be suitable for consultations, treatments, or education plus it is hoped that groups will take advantage of the studio space for regular community activities.

We believe we are stronger when we work together. The benefits of being part of this centre will include a deepening of community, a sharing knowledge and resources, a computerized booking system and reasonable rents. Together we will create a vibrant space for growing a health conscious community.

At this time we are accepting input and expressions of interest from the Sooke community. Do you have an interest in this venture? Do you have talents to share? Can you offer guidance? Got ideas? Please get in touch.
