The Hub of Social Services on the Coast

Funders and Partners

The Sunshine Coast Community Resource Centre is grounded in the practice of Community Development. In all things we do, we choose never to work in isolation and we actively seek out partners. Collaboration is the key to our success! With fewer dollars available, our effectiveness comes from building on the strengths of individuals and other organizations. With each project, new partners join old friends to roll up their sleeves to make it happen. (See the pages about our specific projects for information on who we collaborated with on each project.)



The Resource Centre could not exist without funding and support. Our core funding is from Community Gaming Grants provided by the British Columbia Provincial Government. We also actively apply for and receive funding from various organizations and agencies that: help individuals and organizations to access information and provide referrals, and support projects we’ve initiated. With huge thanks and bouquets to BC Gaming for supporting our core service of information and referral, we are also thankful for the recent support of:

Sunshine Coast Community Services Society

The Resource Centre has a rich relationship with the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society (SCCSS). This relationship has resulted in significant strides towards positive change in our community.

sunshine-coast-community-resource-centre-partnersIn July 2011, the Resource Centre and SCCSS signed a memorandum of understanding to guide our partnership. Our understanding is based on the complementary visions, missions, values and purposes of the two organizations, and the compatibility of our strategic plans. The memorandum’s primary purpose is to support progress towards a better informed and better served community.

The Resource Centre complements the work of SCCSS through our information and referral service and short-term programs. We also initiate grant requests to develop projects that address gaps we’ve identified in services, and we encourage coordination among service providers.
