Community Safety

If you or anyone else you know is in danger, immediately call 911. 

 

Talk to caring people that will help you frame your problems, and understand potential actions and solutions.

 

Please, show compassion to yourself and others, and reach out. Do not be discouraged - there is always someone there for you.

 

Community Response Network 

CRN's raise the awareness of abuse, neglect and self-neglect in vulnerable adults, and to ultimately prevent it from happening. When the community cannot provide appropriate support to the adult, the Adult Guardianship Act provides designated agencies (Health Authorities and Community Living BC) with the responsibility for investigating and ensuring that the proper action is undertaken.
