Sunshine Coast Community Services Society
Who We Are
Sunshine Coast Community Services Society is a community organization providing services for people on the Sunshine Coast of B.C. since 1974. We are a non-government organization overseen by a volunteer board of directors, funded by government contracts, foundations and community donations. We employ 90+ staff, work with hundreds of volunteers and provide more than 30 programs and services to the community.
What We Do
We meet the growing needs of our community by bringing resources and tools to the most vulnerable, and to those who need support to reach their goals. Last year, we supported 5,000 - or 1 in 5 - community members on the Sunshine Coast. Our services support pregnant women and new parents, families, children, youth, adults, and seniors through the provision of crisis response, support programs, housing, and advocacy.
For more than 45 years we have provided resources and services that support the Sunshine Coast community including managing a range of housing options including safe and supportive short-term housing for women and children through our Yew Transition House and Thyme Second Stage Housing. We also provide housing and support for people living with mental illness at Legacy Housing.
