Community Outreach Services
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused stress, hardships and pressures that many people have never experienced before. During times of uncertainty, it is normal to experience a whole range of emotions, including fear and anxiety.
Sometimes life is complicated, and during the current pandemic, it's OK to ask for support.
At Community Outreach Services (COS), we recognize that this is a time of increased vulnerability and we are here to help.
When you call COS, you will be connected with an Outreach Worker, who is here to support individuals and families through life's challenges. We can help you identify your goals and strengths, create an action plan, build skills and access community resources.
Our services are open to everyone and they are free of charge.
Outreach Workers can help with:
- Skill building
- Forms and applications
Community Outreach Services (COS) offers community programming, resources and confidential, non-judgmental support for all ages in Jasper.
The COS office is located at 627 Patricia Street. It is currently closed to the public, however, Outreach Workers are available to meet virtually or in-person by appointment. We operate Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
