About Community Social Services

Community Social Services are rarely in the public eye – although the problems they help solve are often in the news.

Community Social Service workers are caring professionals who support 

  • People with physical, mental and developmental disabilities
  • At-risk youth
  • Women experiencing family violence
  • Families and children with special needs
  • New Canadians, refugees and non-English speaking residents
  • Aboriginal individuals and communities
  • Children who witness abuse

These caring professionals work for community-based,  mostly not-for-profit agencies contracted by the B.C. government to provide these services. They help and support the most vulnerable members of our communities.

  • When women flee abusive relationships along with their frightened children, they turn to community social services;
  • When families need support for their developmentally disabled children, they turn to community social services;
  • When teens need assistance to get off the street, they turn to community social services;
  • When infants are born with disabilities or serious health problems, they turn to community social services;
  • When immigrants need help to resettle in their new country, they turn to community social services;
  • ... and many more!

Community Social Services workers are the heart and soul of our communities!
