Sunshine Coast Community Resource Centre
Since our incorporation as a society in 1992 as the Sunshine Coast Women’s Resources Society and now the Sunshine Coast Community Resource Centre (also known as CRC) we have been one of the Coast’s key service providers and our plan is to continue to carry on this tradition. We have a partnership with Sunshine Coast Community Services Society to assist in the delivery of our programs.
Our mission is to “inform, refer, educate, and empower our community, one person at a time.”
The Community Resource Centre is a hub of Coast wide information! Our services and programs are constantly growing and changing depending on the needs of the community. We can help connect you with the local service providers and government agencies who have the expertise to get the assistance you may need.

Community Connections for Seniors
Community Connections for Seniors was a project of the Community Resource Centre, funded by the New Horizons for Seniors program of the federal government. This project came out of the needs of our large and growing seniors population and to recent community consultations telling us that it is challenging for seniors to get information about government, community and social services.
The purpose of this project was to better understand the information needs of seniors on the Sunshine Coast, and to begin to address those needs. We held eight community meetings up and down the coast, each led by two local senior volunteers. Seniors shared their concerns and ideas about how they get information and connect to the community and had an opportunity to connect with their neighbours over lunch. Information on current programs and services was also provided.
