2-1-1 Senior Safety During COVID-19
As part of British Columbia’s emergency novel coronavirus (COVID-19) response plan, the Province is providing the United Way of the Lower Mainland with $50 million to bolster seniors’ supports at community service agencies throughout British Columbia.
This will help address immediate needs associated with the impact of COVID-19, so seniors get the support they need to stay safe at home.
Starting today, BC211 will be available to residents of Hudson’s Hope and provide extended hours of service. This service will take calls from people who would like to volunteer to help seniors in their community with basic needs, including grocery shopping and pharmacy drop-offs and check-ins, as well as register seniors who may need support.
You can access this service in two ways:
You can call 211 and select the Safe Seniors Strong Communities option or visit
Please share this with your friends and family, and if you know a senior who needs support please help them sign up or have them contact the District at (250) 783-9901 and we will help them to register.
Let’s all do our part to keep our vulnerable populations safe and supported.
