The Centre has been serving residents of Richmond and neighbouring area since 1989 through a wide variety of services to meet the rapidly increasing needs brought about by the huge influx of immigrants. The Centre was relocated to the Caring Place in 1994 with 16 service organizations under one roof.
The Richmond Service Centre now offers programs and services aim at assisting new and established Canadians to adapt and integrate into the community, as well as to gain skills and resources to become productive and contributing members of the community.
It assists and facilitates the development of mutual support groups among seniors and women, and volunteer groups among youth. The Centre maintains strong networks with local service providers, community and political leaders and collaborates with them for the promotion of multiculturalism and the integration of new Canadians into the community.
