Sea to Sky Community Services Society

Sea to Sky Family Drop in Centre

Over the past decade, the Sea-to-Sky region has seen significant growth, with many new families. To ensure these families are able to connect with needed resources, Sea-to-Sky Community Services Society wants to open a Drop-in Family Centre in Squamish that offers referrals and information, workshops, peer support and child-minding to families with children ages 0 to 18. The program would be led by one half-time Family Support Worker who would host two drop-in sessions per week and offer one-on-one support with families as needed.
