Yellowhead Community Services (YCS) we are dedicated to helping improve the lives of those we serve. Our trained staff provide integrated supports and services to individuals of all ages through several different community locations, including our offices and program centres in Clearwater and Barriere.
YCS is a non-profit, registered charity. As a contracted agency, we commit our energy and resources to delivering a wide variety of mostly free programs and services to those residing in the North Thompson Valley - from McLure to Blue River.
We are guided by our Mission Statement:
"Providing services through collaboration, leadership and innovation that create positive change and contribute to a healthy community."
YCS is also the contract service provider for WorkBC Employment Services with full service centres located in both Barriere and Clearwater. For more information on Employment Services go to the WorkBC website by clicking on the WorkBC logo to the right.

Do you, or someone you know, have a child with special needs? Raising a child with special needs can be a unique challenge, especially in a rural community where social support is difficult to find. The Supported Child Development Program is conducting a survey to determine if there would be interest in starting up a Family Support Group in the Clearwater or Barriere area. We invite you, or anyone else you know, to participate in this survey by going to the Early Childhood page of our website.
