Resource Centre exploring community hub

Non-Profits

Across Canada and the U.S. non-profit groups are coming together to create community hubs that allow them to secure affordable office and meeting space, share services, serve the public more effectively and build strong collaborations. A 2014 report by Tides Canada identified 200 co-location spaces across Canada alone. 

“Thanks to funding from the BC Rural Dividend Fund, the Community Resource Centre is excited to be taking the lead on exploring the feasibility of a co-location model of non-profit agencies, organizations and social enterprises on the Sunshine Coast,” says co-chair Anne Titcomb.

The vision is to create a “go to” information and referral/community connection hub for the Sunshine Coast, while also growing the capacity and effectiveness of like-minded non-profits. 

The Resource Centre is inviting all interested potential partners to join in an exploratory meeting on Friday, March 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Resource Centre to brainstorm possible opportunities. 

For more information or to RSVP, please contact Christabelle Kux-Kardos, project expediter, at info@resourcecentre.ca or 604-885-4088 by March 1.
