Update:  COVID-19:  Where are we now?
It has been since mid-march that we posted the precautions that Salmo Community Services is doing to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  There have been many changes in our communities and lives in those days – this is what’s happening at SCRS:
Most of our services are still available through phone and email or Zoom contact.  These include Family Support, Adult Mental Health and Substance Use Support, Child and Youth Mental Health Outreach, CAPC – Children 0-6, PEACE – Children and Youth, Stopping the Violence and Safe Homes, Police Based Victim Services and Food Security.
For more information about how to connect call us at 250-357-2277.
We have added the social distancing protocol to the enhanced cleaning and hand washing practices.   Staff schedules have been adjusted to have fewer people in our buildings at one time.
We are developing a Seniors Friendly Caller Program if you know a senior who may want a wellness check or help with groceries/medication delivery, etc., please call our office 250-357-2277 or email
Groups have been cancelled until further notice including:
