YMCA Canada

Our children and now grandchildren have enjoyed the facilities of the Chilliwack YMCA for many years. We decided to support the Y when it was announced that it was planning a major upgrade of its facilities. 

Did you know the YMCA is one of  B.C's largest daycare providers?  Helping children, youth, and people of all ages and walks of life lead healthier, happier more connected lives, the YMCA believes that everyone deserves to reach their potential regardless of the barriers they face. The Y reduces fees for individuals and families that are financially challenged enabling everyone to participate.

Programs such as Health & Fitness; Child Care; Employment Services; Immigrant Services; Day Camps; Mental Wellness; Youth Engagement; Sports Leagues; and YMCA Child Care Resources all move toward that goal.

 For more than 135 years, the YMCA has cared for kids, shaped leaders for tomorrow, and helped generations of people come together to find support, get healthier and make friends for life.

 Typically, you can enter one of the 270+ YMCA program locations across the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, or Sunshine Coast and find a community of people participating in life-enhancing programs. During the past two years of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, thousands of people found connections with each other online and sourced the resources they need to continue learning, connecting, and growing through online groups, programs, services, and resources.

Chilliwack Community Services (CCS)

Our family has supported CCS for many years. It has been serving our community since 1928: CCS is a registered charitable society that provides a wide range of programs to people from “twinkle to twilight" living within Chilliwack and surrounding neighborhoods. Core programs include Early Years, Youth, Families, Seniors, Immigrants, Literacy, and Employment. CCS helps the less fortunate in our community to learn how to help themselves.

There is no cost for service unless specifically noted, and confidentiality is assured. As a long-standing member of the community, CCS has played a leading role in contributing to strategic social service planning for the area. It has solid relationships with virtually all not-for-profit organizations, government societies, service clubs, church groups, and community resources. At the regional/provincial level, CCS is a contributing member of several social service networks and associations.

 Since 2017, its Strategic Plan has included implementation of the Paramount Project including program and office space and seniors’ housing; development of Indigenous approaches; and Advanced community-based child care.

 As well as streamlining its referral system and exploring enhanced programming for families, CCS has committed to exploring a new language interpretation model and fee for service model; supporting expanded Seniors Services in collaboration with partners; advancement of Youth Services, and a focus on homelessness prevention.

 Its also chosen to explore opportunities to advance upgrading and high school completion and expanded WorkBC services, improve employment outcomes, and deliver training opportunities.

I hope you will join our family in supporting CCS. They are well worth the effort.
