About Cyrus Centre

Cyrus Centre is dedicated to ensuring youth in need always have a place to go and someone to turn to. With locations in both Abbotsford and Chilliwack, Cyrus Centre provides services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days of the year.


Cyrus Centre provides the immediate practical needs of food and housing. Further, Cyrus Centre offers counselling, mediation, employment coaching and referrals. Staff attend youth court in an outreach support capacity, helping youth navigate the legal system. The prime goal of all the work at Cyrus Centre is to see families restored whenever possible and safe for the youth. Therefore, Cyrus provides support that extends beyond youth and embraces the families as well, working towards a healthy re-unification and exiting street life.


You can help feed, clothe, shelter and counsel a youth through your support of Cyrus Centre Ministries. Join us in being a compassionate response to youth in need.
