In keeping with the new PHO protocols, and finding the balance between keeping staff, participants and clients safer, we will be changing our mask protocols starting Wednesday, March 16th:
- Masks are recommended in our public/program spaces. We will have N95 masks available for staff and continue to have masks available for participants when requested.
- Masks will still be required in cars for staff and participants.
- Masks will be required in shared offices where six feet distancing cannot be maintained.
One of our core values is respect, therefore, masks are to be worn if a client, participant or staff member requests during an appointment.
Please call us for specific program information 604-885-5881 Monday-Friday 9am - 4pm.
COVID-19 Safety Plan
We are committed to providing exceptional services in a safe and healthy environment, taking all appropriate safety precautions. We are using information from WorkSafeBC (WSBC), the Provincial Health Officer (PHO), the Ministry of Health, and the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) to guide our decision-making processes in making plans to re-open workspaces and provide services to our community. We operate more than 30+ programs, and support clients and participants throughout the Sunshine Coast – for this reason program specific safety plans are being developed as part of our organizational safety plan.
This plan is a living document and will evolve as needed to take any new direction from WSBC, PHO, BCCDC, and / or the Ministry of Health.
You can find our current plan at SCCSS WorkSafe BC Plan (last updated July 12, 2021).

Sunshine Coast Community Services
working together for an
engaged, healthy and thriving Coast.
Sunshine Coast Community Services Society is a community-based organization that has been providing services for people on the Sunshine Coast since 1974. Our history is one of caring, commitment and flexibility. We are a non-government organization overseen by a volunteer board of directors, funded by government contracts, foundations and community donations. We employ 85+ professional staff, work with 175+ volunteers and provide services through more than 30 programs all along the Coast.
Caring Since 1974
Sunshine Coast Community Service – Celebrating over forty years of caring for our community.
What Does It Mean to Support Community Services' Work?
It means that the woman who was being abused by her intimate partner was able to take her children, access a safe place to stay, and get the resources and support she needed to keep herself and her children safe.
It means that the senior living in Pender Harbour, who is isolated and alone, has a friendly visitor who shows up each week for friendship and to help connect them to other services they may need to be able to continue to live independently.
It means that the new parents who learned that their child has cerebral palsy will have the support they need in their own community to ensure their child is able to reach his or her full potential.
How You Can Support Community Services' Work
Your investment in Community Services will help meet the growing needs of our neighbours on the Sunshine Coast. You can help sustain and enhance our core and emerging programs to strengthen families, help children, youth and vulnerable adults reach their full potential and support the many seniors on the Coast that need us.
