About Us

Welcome!

Yellowhead Community Services (YCS) 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."

Our Mission Statement:

"Providing services through collaboration, leadership and innovation that create positive change and contribute to a healthy community."

Yellowhead Community Services Society (YCS) was incorporated in 1989 (under the former name of Wells Grey Community Resources Society) in response to a recognized need for an umbrella organization to develop and administer a number of social/health services for the North Thompson Valley of British Columbia. 

YCS has grown to be the largest non-profit, registered charity in the North Thompson and employs highly qualified full and part time staff and contracted workers to deliver a large variety of programs and services. Our services are delivered to Valley communities from McLure to Blue River. Our continuum of services from pre-natal up to the senior years are, for the most part, free of charge. Subsidies are often available when fees are charged.

Our Board and staff is continually engaging with other community partners in the Valley to offer ways of increasing healthy choices and strengthening family and community ties, thereby enhancing a positive rural lifestyle for all.
