South Shuswap Community Response Network

About the South Shuswap Community Response Network:

As part of the BC Association of Community Response Networks, the South Shuswap Community Response Network continues to grow to include other interested member agencies and organizations. Sorrento Centre serves as a community hub in the South Shuswap for vulnerable seniors and others who are the focus of CRN work.

As the host agency, the team at Sorrento Centre acts as first point of contact for people with a variety of needs and concerns, ensuring they are connected to local, provincial, and national resources to meet their needs. The network also hosts prevention and education activities with local stakeholders to build a coordinated response to abuse, neglect and self-neglect of vulnerable adults

About Sorrento Centre:

One of our core values is to be an inclusive place for all and we work hard to be a good neighbour in the South Shuswap as well as the wider Shuswap region.

Tucked beside the school on Passchendaele Road, Sorrento Centre is known to many in the south Shuswap as a welcoming place where weavers weave and quilters quilt, where musicians jam and yoga teachers practice, where children play and learners learn, where dogs and cyclists gather, and where the weary rest as meditators find peace and the spiritual nourish their souls.

The South Shuswap Community Response Network is on the traditional and unceded lands of the Secw├ępemc people.
