Outcomes Report (2014-15)

OCS Annual Outcomes Report 2014-2015

several partners under the joint Federal Housing and Provincial Government Housing First Model to tailor an approach that will work for our community. In addition, we have worked along-side our colleagues from Surrey Urban Mission and Richmond CHIMO to lay the groundwork for an innovative model of housing the homeless that we will continue to pursue this next year. Having completed a new strategic plan, we look forward to the next years and addressing our three key directions: growth to remain relevant to communities that we serve, community engagement, and continuing our tradition of collaborative partnership. My sincerest thank you to our staff for the talent, energy, innovation and inspiration that they bring to their work every day. As described by one of our clients, “you are a blanket that wraps around people when they need it.”

To our volunteers, thank you for your big heartedness, skill and the gift of time.

Thank you to our Board of Directors who so willingly share their expertise, time and care to govern OCS. A special thank you to Tim Beachy, Board Chair, whose energy, passion and support seem to have no bounds. A special thank you as well goes to Dave Woods for his time with us as a Director. Dave stepped down from the Board when he was elected to Surrey City Council. Our loss is the City’s gain.

To our funders and donors, thank you for your trust in us to shepherd and make good use of the resources that you provide on behalf of the communities we serve.
