“Talitha Koum didn’t judge me for the crimes I committed, the way I looked, or the way I chose drugs over my children. We were all loved the same, and it was an unconditional love.”
TK Grad, Past TK Executive Director

Talitha Koum Homes

Talitha Koum operates two recovery homes and one “bridge home” in residential areas of Coquitlam, all of which are open to women and their young children. Starr House, named in honour of TK founder Starr Peardon, is operated in partnership with B.C. Housing. In addition to providing accommodation for nine clients and their children, it is home to our administrative offices. Gianna House, named for the patron saint of mothers, can also accommodate nine people. The Talitha Koum Society co-owns the home with the City of Coquitlam, which provided funding from its Affordable Housing Reserve Fund. In addition, Talitha Koum operates a “bridge home” for some program graduates, offering subsidized rent and continuing connection and support to assist our clients as they build their careers or continue their education.
