Food Centre For as long as Mission Community Services has existed, its food centre has actively served in feeding those who are hungry. Now four decades later the centre is creating for its clients pre-made hampers, bags of food containing soup, canned fruit, vegetables and tuna, pasta and pasta sauce as staples.
Homeless Outreach Program Mission Community Services Society directly engages with those who are homeless through an outreach program which bridges the gaps and creates awareness of services available to them. Our outreach worker works with the homeless for MCSS and says networking, advocacy and working in conjunction with the District of Mission, RCMP and Mission Friendship Centre are all part of the program. We also help people who are homeless with advocating for benefits, with medical requirements and dealing with forms.
Homeless Prevention Program Mission Community Services Society is part of a BC-wide initiative that is aimed at providing at-risk groups with rental supplements to make renting in the private market more accessible. This program is called the Homeless Prevention Program and is facilitated by an outreach worker. Mission youth who are at-risk, women fleeing violence, people leaving corrections/hospital and people from the aboriginal community in finding and maintaining housing in the private market. As an outreach worker she works diligently alongside other community resources to ensure that the population she supports are having their needs met and are able to maintain their housing. While the primary objective of the Homeless Prevention Program is to provide rental supplements, our worker is ready and willing to assist someone in need with anything that is housing-related.
