About Capilano Community Services Society
For 50 years, Capilano Community Services Society (CCSS) has connected residents of the North Shore to their communities by providing support services, resources, and out-reach programs that address the current and emerging needs of at-risk youth, and frail and isolated seniors. Our programming is designed to support and enhance social connections, health and well-being, and resiliency. Our goals are to foster vibrant, inclusive and caring communities where residents feel a sense of belonging and can thrive.
