Fraserside is inspired to create communities of belonging where the diversity of all people is welcome. Fraserside is a multi-service agency that supports people needing housing, seeking work, and/or living with developmental disabilities, mental health or substance use issues, or low income. Our focus is New Westminster and neighbouring communities.
Fraserside’s first four directions are rooted in our belief that communities are inclusive when people:
- Have a home.
- Make a contribution.
- Are in relationship with one another.
- Participate in community.
The roots of Fraserside Community Services Society extend back to 1972 when a small group of people formed a support group to help one another cope with, and overcome, personal challenges. What started out as six people working from a basement has evolved into an organization employing 200 people, working out of 13 locations, across six communities. We truly believe, "We all belong!"
We acknowledge that Fraserside works and resides on the traditional and unceded territory of Coast Salish Peoples, including the Qayqayt, Kwikwetlem, Tsleil-Waututh, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Kwantlen, and Tsawwassen First Nations.
