COMMUNITY SERVICES

 
 
In 2007 Ocean Crest Community Church planted a ministry in Port Hardy. Over the course of these ten years, The Salvation Army Lighthouse Resource Centre has become a beacon of light and a symbol of hope for many people in the community. In and through each program facilitated at the center, central components of our faith have been incorporated, including prayer and scripture through devotions and Bible study. 
The Lighthouse Resource Centre has an open door policy and everyone is welcome. We have a family atmosphere where people are listened to, cared for, and treated with dignity and respect. Our team goes above and beyond to ensure that the people we serve feel valued. The purpose of all our programs and services is to meet people “where they are at” without judgment. We offer these programs and services in a warm, friendly, and safe environment that helps us to foster relationships that are nurturing and loving.

So come on in, you are invited, and we hope to see you soon

SOBERING AND ASSESSMENT
 
01 April – 31 Oct. Each year this location provides shelter for up to six persons as it relates to the “Sobering and Assessment” program. Through this agreement Ocean Crest Community Ministries provides a  six (6) bed sobering and assessment program in Port Hardy.  This dovetails with the existing Extreme Weather Response (EWR) contract with BC Housing that covers November through March. The Facility improves safety for individuals who may need a safe place for sobering for short-stays (up to twenty-four hours) and who may access related assessment services and supports, including access to food, laundry and linkages to other community services when appropriate.
