Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SOS is only offering essential services at this time. SOS Thrift Shop is closed until further notice. SOS Community Services Centres are closed, but we are able to continue our Meals on Wheels program, Emergency Assistance & Advocacy (by phone) and Seniors Advocacy (by phone). Ministry clients can call about using a drop-off/pick-up service for report cards. The Homeless Prevention program will continue support for existing clients. All Child, Youth & Family programs are suspended. For more information or for assistance, call 250-248-2093. We wish you good health and hope to reconnect again soon.
