“S.U.C.C.E.S.S. has made a huge positive improvement in my life with the groceries and phone calls. Volunteer knows what groceries I like and I enjoy the phone calls. I can’t say enough about S.U.C.C.E.S.S.!”

COVID-19 Update

As the BC Restart Plan is under way, some of our regular services have resumed.

The Safe Seniors, Strong Communities initiative is still under way, which supports older adults with the following services:

  • Grocery shopping and delivery
  • Prescription pick-up and delivery
  • Meal pick-up and delivery
  • Virtual (online or telephone) friendly visits

Regardless of where you reside in BC, you can call 2-1-1 to request services. The BC 211 operator will connect you to the service agency that is closest to you.


Volunteers play an important role in supporting older adults in the community.
