Building opportunities for our community and the future.
Building a stronger community
Thanks to the support of many generous donors, and our partnership with the Squamish United Church, we completed the construction of Centrepoint and moved into our new building in the summer of 2017. With Centrepoint, we will be able to provide better help to more people, today and in the future as community needs grow and change.
The construction campaign may be complete, but the building campaign continues. There are still many needs emerging as we settle into our new building and with the programs we provide. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about our specific needs or donate today and we will apply your generous donation to our needs priority list.
Most of our Squamish programs and all of our administration have moved into Centrepoint, accommodating a wide range of important programs and services:
- A full range of support for childhood development:
o Preschool-aged programs – with staff using the HighScope program, proven to increase children’s development
o Parenting and family programs – such as those that improve the health of pregnant women, build bonds between parents and babies, improve parenting skills and improve family dynamics
o Services that help children with additional needs, such as our physical therapy and occupational therapy programs
o Childcare resources, including educational toys parents can borrow and a database of childcare options in the region
- Support for adults with development disabilities, including group activities that build life skills, one-on-one support and help with finding a job
- Counselling and support programs, including those for women in violent relationships and for people who are homeless
A place to meet, grow and learn
There are several meeting rooms and two community rooms for groups to use for meetings, workshops and events, during non-program times, including:
- Squamish Savings Community Room with adjacent kitchenette
- Anne and Owen Carney Community Room with adjacent kitchenette
- Small meeting rooms
A safe and suitable home
Too many members of our community are forced to leave due to a lack of affordable, appropriate housing. Centrepoint includes 32 affordable rental apartments.
