Non-profit - All of our member agencies are non-profit. You can be assured that all resources received by our agencies are strictly directed to further the purpose of our organizations.
Community-based - Our member agencies are located in urban and rural settings across BC and the Yukon. Staff and management of our agencies reside in these communities, and have an intimate knowledge of the challenges and resources availalbe in their community. This knowledge is critical in collaborating with other service providers and agencies within a community to ensure effective and efficient service delivery.
