Community Connections Society of Southeast BC - Cranbrook, BC
ENHANCING THE WELL-BEING OF THE DIVERSE PEOPLE OF OUR REGION.
Community Connections Society of Southeast BC (CCSSEBC), often abbreviated to CCS, is a non-profit charitable organization that provides programs and services to Cranbrook and the East Kootenay Region. Since incorporation in 1982, CCS has provided integrated, accessible social services to individuals and families throughout the East Kootenay Region. To respond to community needs we deliver quality services both directly and through community partnerships. Originally a women’s collective (Cranbrook Women’s Resource Society) formed to provide safe harbor to women fleeing domestic violence: the agency has grown considerably over the years and has taken in new programs in response to emerging local needs.
CCS manages two hubs of services: Kootenay Child Development Center (KCDC) and Community Connections Society (CCS Hub). Both hubs are a combination of programs that are managed by CCS and programs/services that our community partners manage, but with whom we share that space and the same philosophy of collaborative service delivery.
