Our Story

Beacon Community Services’ programs and services span every phase of life. We dedicate ourselves to:

  • Helping keep children, youth and families healthy, strong and connected
  • Sheltering seniors and people with disabilities in safe, affordable housing
  • Supporting seniors to stay social, active, healthy and energized
  • Equipping people to develop skills and find opportunities in the world of work
  • Supporting the bereaved and mentally ill
  • Connecting volunteers with our community
  • Caring for those in need
  • And more!

Our charity is proud to have ‘grown up’ in the communities we serve.

In 1974, a small group of volunteers formed the Citizens’ Advisory Committee to help address social issues in Saanich Peninsula communities. There were a few people, offering a few programs.

Over the years, our charity evolved, expanded, and changed its name a few times. Eventually, we became Beacon Community Association (better known to our partners, communities, and the people we serve as Beacon Community Services).

Today, Beacon serves Southern Vancouver Island and the outer Gulf Islands — and the Beacon team numbers around 250 staff and 600 volunteers.

We  look forward to serving YOU!
