Project SHARE started back in 1989 and was formerly known as C.O.E.S. (Coordinated Outreach Emergency Services). The offices were located within a small building on Victoria Avenue. In 1992, the agency became incorporated and changed its name to Project SHARE, with the acronym meaning support, housing, awareness, resources and emergency. The name change was accompanied with a move of their offices to 1st Avenue. By, 2002, the organization found a need for a bigger building due to the increase in demand of its services. Project SHARE then relocated to Stanley Avenue, where they are currently located.
