Our mission 

To Build on Individual and Family Strengths Which Support Growth and Healthy Lifestyles

Since opening our first program in 1974 Comox Valley Family Services has grown and evolved into a supportive, caring, and thriving social service organization that provides a comprehensive range of programs and services.

We are a non-profit, charitable society governed by a volunteer board of directors. We are proud to be accredited through two agencies - CARF (Commission for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) and the BC Association of Family Resource Programs.

We provide services to families in the Comox Valley and surrounding areas - The City of Courtenay, the Town of Comox, and the Village of Cumberland. Other areas include the northern communities between the valley and Oyster River and southern communities as far as the Union Bay area.

The CVFSA team includes the Board of Directors, the Executive Director, administration, program management and staff, and our dedicated volunteers. We strive to make a difference through supportive and compassionate services to the individuals and families we serve and the community in which we live.  

Our priority over the past 47 years has been to offer support services that can help families, children, and our community flourish.  We use a strengths-based perspective that offers ways of working with people where the focus is on abilities and potential. We believe in a holistic approach that recognizes everyone is unique and resilient.
