Find Support BC: Locating helpful groups in your community

Community Living BC is pleased to support an important resource offered by the Family Support Institute (FSI). FSI has created an online resource database called www.findsupportBC.com that connects families and individuals living with diverse abilities  to more than 4,000 governmental and non-governmental resources in almost every region of British Columbia.

Find Support BC was launched in 2015, with a small grant from CLBC, and every effort was taken to make sure the database would be an easy to use trusted online resource for families. When developing the site, FSI brought focus groups together at every stage of site development. Because of these efforts, CLBC has heard from many individuals and families that the data base has been a successful tool and central access point for locating programs and activities that range from assistive technology, recreation, and housing options to funding, financial security, and government programs and services.

In addition to the multiple resources found on the site, users will be able to access the recently added Transitions Timeline that provides checklists, priority areas and steps families should take and what services and supports may be available to them specific to transitioning youth.
