BFS relies on donations to help enhance our existing programs. Donations can help to ensure that group participants can enjoy a healthy snack while attending groups or that BFS can provide a travel voucher so that participants can attend BFS groups or appointments. Donations can also provide emergency funding for participants in their greatest time of need to help them to attend out of town medical appointments or to purchase emergency staples like milk or bread. Donations can also allow a child to participate in recreational activities that their family is unable to afford.

We appreciate any financial donation that you are able to make. Gifts can be a cheque, cash, gift cards to local merchants or by using the link to Chimp Charitable Impact below. We are registered with the Canada Revenue Agency and will issue a tax receipt for any monetary donation made.

If you would like your gift to go directly to a specific program, just let us know.

If you would like to volunteer your time with us, that would be great! There are opportunities to assist in our many different programs.

Our Programs & Services

In an effort to minimize the risk of infection to Boundary Family Services Participants, Staff and the Community due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the following changes have been made to available services based on BC Ministry of Health and WorkSafe BC recommendations.

  • All drop-in groups have been suspended until further notice
  • People accessing Family Centres will be asked to report any symptoms of illness or if they have travelled outside of the country recently
  • People accessing the Family Centres will be required to wear a mask, use the provided hand sanitizer and to ensure physical distancing with staff and other people that are present 

Current participants can arrange for a telephone session or a web-based Zoom session with their worker.  Face to face appointments are available in locations that allow for physical distancing. Please discuss your options with your worker.

New participants and general inquiries can access Boundary Family Services.  We have staff available to respond to your questions in person, by phone or email and general voicemails and emails are checked regularly. 

Thank you for your cooperation in helping
to keep our community safe and healthy.


Boundary Family Services provides a wide variety of programs to meet the interests and needs of children, youth and families throughout the Boundary.

A Boundary Family Centre is located in each Elementary School from Christina Lake to Beaverdell with the main hub being the Glanville Family Centre in Grand Forks. Some programs require an appointment while other programs are open for drop in. Accessing most programs just requires that you contact us for an intake appointment or drop in time but some programs have specific guidelines and require a referral.

Please call or email us to discuss interest and eligibility.
