Sunshine Coast Community Services
working together for an
Engaged, Healthy & 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 95 professional staff, work with hundreds of volunteers and provide services through over 35 programs all along the Coast.

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.
