Resources for community members

This is meant to be a list of local (within walking distance of our community, mostly) resources that support community members in a variety of ways.

COVID-19 Update: Some services may be limited to supports that can be delivered by phone, email or video calls, or scheduled appointments to allow for physical distancing. 

Services offered may change at any time. This list is ‘living’ meaning it will be updated as more services are introduced to the SCA.
