Castlegar, October 24th 2023 – The Castlegar and District Community Services Society (CDCSS) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the date for its upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM). This annual event is an opportunity for our valued members, stakeholders, and supporters to come together, reflect on our accomplishments, and celebrate our achievements. This year’s AGM is being held at the Community Forum Room, 448 – 13th Avenue, in Castlegar. The AGM is open to the public, and we hope you will join us.  

This year marks a pivotal moment in the organization’s history as we embark on a new era of leadership, commitment, and innovation. We are looking forward to continuing to serve the community with renewed vision and energy. There are currently 7 Board of Directors with members who represent the diversity of our community and who bring a wide range of skills and expertise. The 17 full- and part-time program employees and our volunteers continue to deliver important, high quality services to the people of our community.   

CDCSS’s strengths have always been, and remain, its responsiveness to emerging community needs and its multi-service approach, giving us the ability to reach people in need with a variety of services that can make an immediate difference. Six of our programs and services are offered under contract with various provincial government ministries (Police-Based Victim Services, Safe Homes, Women’s Outreach, PEACE Children’s Counselling, STV Women’s Counselling, and Sexual Abuse Intervention Children’s Counselling) while seven programs are made possible through contribution agreements from a wide range of provincial, federal and local funders and donors (Better at Home Help for Seniors, W.K Volunteer Driver Program, Castlegar Youth Action Network, Housing Outreach Program, Rebuilding Lives Women’s Skill building Program, Community Volunteer Income Tax Program, and the Street Outreach and Connection Centre Project).
