Sources Community Resources Society is an internationally-accredited, community-based non-profit organization. We have been providing help, encouragement and hope for individuals and families in White Rock, Surrey, Delta, Langley, Prince George, Parksville and beyond for over 40 years.
We touch the lives of more than 40,000 individuals and families across the Lower Mainland, Northern British Columbia and Vancouver Island every year. To serve them, our team of dedicated staff and devoted volunteers offer a variety of social wellness programs and services through 20 locations, including Community Resource Centres, that are continually expanding to meet individual and community needs.
Our Mission is to promote:
We strive to create more vibrant and resilient communities by offering support to children, youth, families, persons with disabilities, seniors, LGBTQ2S+ individuals, and others who are coping with isolation, addiction, mental illness, poverty, disability and conflict. We also support our communities through leadership, education and volunteerism.
We are very proud that SOURCES was the first social service agency in British Columbia and the 13th in Canada to be accredited by the internationally-recognized Council on Accreditation—a significant recognition of the high quality of our service to our clients and our community. We were re-accredited in March 2016 with no recommendations for improvement and are incredibly proud of this achievement.
OUR HISTORY | In 1978, Peace Arch Community Services (PACS) was formed to serve the Surrey and White Rock community. Only a few thousand people sought its services and referral information; but as family and social challenges intensified, so did the need for PACS volunteers and professionals to help others overcome adversity and build a better life. In 2008, PACS celebrated 30 years of service. At the time, the organization provided direct service to approximately 12,300 individuals. SOURCES was born in 2010 as other agencies consolidated their services with PACS; these included Gateway Autism Society and Gateway Autism Foundation (2010), Newton Advocacy Group Society (2011), South Fraser Women’s Services Society (2012) and Cornerstone Care Society (2015).
