About Burnaby Community Services

Founded in 1971, Burnaby Community Services is a charitable society providing a voice, resources and opportunities to people who need support. We believe change can only happen when people are empowered to improve their lives and their community. Currently, we offer a range of programs and publications to support families with LOW INCOME, and seniors experiencing ISOLATION.


Last year, our team provided support 129,553 times to people in need. In addition, we have developed new innovative approaches to breaking the cycles of poverty and isolation, continuously helping make Burnaby a better place to live, work and play.


The Coldest Night of the Year Burnaby will raise funds for our outreach and advocacy work, namely the printing and distribution of our 12,000 Community Outreach Cards, Community Volunteer Income Tax Program & Form Completion Assistance Programs, and providing hampers to unique individuals (who are homeless or at risk of) during Christmas.


About Society To End Homelessness In Burnaby

Your help sustains our work assisting individuals or families who are homeless or at risk, through providing basic necessities such as free food, transit, hygiene and other supplies and by bridging people to services providing assistance obtaining shelter, financial support, health care and other necessities.


Last year we served 443 unique individuals through 3,650 visits to our Outreach Resource Centre. We fundraise to maintain our coordinator who supports the volunteers to carry out this important work and undertakes the leadership and collaborative efforts required to reduce and ultimately resolve homelessness in Burnaby.
