Dawson Creek 'Better at Home'

Our BETTER AT HOME program is continuing to offer essential support to local seniors throughout the COVID-19 epidemic. 

We will continue to provide drop off grocery service, snow removal and friendly phone calls/check-ins. 

To protect the health and safety of all parties, these services will involve NO direct contact between seniors and our volunteers. 

Our staff will be available via phone at 250-219-2119, Monday to Friday, 9-3 and we will respond to any messages left outside our operating hours as soon as we can. 

We will also do our best to provide seniors with information and referrals they may require to meet any needs that extend beyond what we can offer through Better at Home at this time. 

Be Safe and please reach out if you are in need of support.

Thank You Dawson Co-op!

What a great time we had, with the folks from Co-op at the BBQ on Sept 21st. The Dawson Co-op generously provided everything we needed to operate the BBQ and we got to keep the proceeds for the Better at Home program.
Thanks Co-op - and thanks to our volunteers and to the folks who braved the crazy winds to enjoy a burger or hot dog.

Posted by Better at Home Dawson Creek on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, In : Fund Raisers

They put on an amazing fundraiser event, with international food, dancing, and the wonderful music of 'Earth, Wind, and Snow'. Today Sai Kaethia Addu and Bhaegav Bhalgamadia, representing the class, came to the office to donate $2,000.00 to the Better at Home program. They also raised money for the Dawson Creek Literacy Society and the Art Gallery. Kudos to t...

A Big Thank You to Encana for donating $3,000 to Better at Home to go towards plowing driveways for seniors.
