SOURCES Legal Services

Sources operates legal services to support our community:

The SOURCES Law Clinic will provide advocacy, legal advice and representation, mainly to low income individuals, in many areas of the law including: social assistance, income assistance, tenancy, employment (including employment insurance and employment standards), workers compensation, human rights, debt and disability (including mental health).

The Family Law Advocacy Clinic provides legal information and resources to individuals dealing with family law issues.  They assist in matters of separation and divorce, guardianship and parenting arrangements, child and spousal support and protection orders. We support individuals in navigating the family justice system by providing legal information, assistance with court forms, court preparation and emotional support. We assist with both provincial and Supreme Court matters.

Christmas Day Dinner

Since 1980, a group of community volunteers supported by Sources Community Resource Society and the White Rock Baptist Church (formerly First United Church) have organized a Christmas Dinner for people who are alone and isolated on Christmas Day.  

The Community Christmas Day Dinner formed when it became known there were many people living in our community who would be spending the holiday season alone and isolated.  Every year since, volunteers have come together to prepare and serve a meal to ensure every person who is vulnerable, alone and/or impoverished does not spend Christmas Day lonely.  There are so many ways in which you can help.  Each role is designed to allow you to commit for just a few short hours either on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.  From cooking and serving the turkey meal to washing the dishes, every role is incredibly important in ensuring everyone is appreciated and able to spend time with their family, friends and community.

The following positions are still available.  If you wish to be added to our waiting list for other positions, please contact our office at volunteerservices@sourcesbc.ca.  

Thank you again for your commitment to your community.  We look forward to working along your side.

About Us

Sources Community Resources Society is an internationally-accredited, community-based non-profit organization. We have been providing help, encouragement and hope for individuals and families in White Rock, Surrey, Delta, Langley, Prince George, Parksville and beyond since 1978.

At SOURCES, we are committed to learning about, celebrating and incorporating Indigenous knowledge into our practices as we continue our work in truth, reconciliation and resurgence. 

We acknowledges that our work takes place on the unceded traditional and ancestral territories of Indigenous people.  Our offices are specifically located on the lands of the Semiahmoo, Kwantlen, Katzie and Tsawwassen First Nations in the Lower Mainland; the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation in the North and the Snaw-Naw-As First Nation on Vancouver Island.  We are honoured to be part of these communities and many more.

We touch the lives of thousands of individuals and families across the Lower Mainland, Northern British Columbia and Vancouver Island every year. To serve them, our team of dedicated staff and devoted volunteers offer a variety of social wellness programs and services through more than 20 locations, including Community Resource Centres, that are continually expanding to meet individual and community needs.

Our Mission is to promote:

Social wellness for our community

We welcome people of all genders, races, cultures, ethnicities and abilities. We strive to create more vibrant and resilient communities by offering support to children, youth, families, persons with disabilities, seniors, LGBTQ2S+ individuals, and others who are coping with isolation, addiction, mental illness, poverty, disability and conflict. We also support our communities through leadership, education and volunteerism.

We are very proud that SOURCES was the first social service agency in British Columbia and the 13th in Canada to be accredited by the internationally-recognized Council on Accreditation—a significant recognition of the high quality of our service to our clients and our community. We were re-accredited in 2020 are incredibly proud of this achievement.
