COMMUNITY BRIDGE is the name under which North Peace Community Resources Society is doing business. We are a community-based charitable organization, whose employees, volunteers, and Board of Directors are members of your community. We offer a network of counselling and support services in the Peace River-Liard area and will adapt our services to best suit the needs of those we serve. Our services are professional, prompt, confidential, and provided free of charge to individuals, families, children, and youth.
North Peace Community Resources Society was established in 1974. In 2014 NPCRS began doing business as COMMUNITY BRIDGE.
In the early 70’s, the Ministry of Human Resources developed a government initiative encouraging regions to implement Community Resource Boards. These boards were to act as an effective community voice in government, involved in the planning and delivery of integrated services within a given region.
In response to the initiative, the Fort St. John Community Services and Information Centre began the process of forming a Community Resource Board.
Sixty-four members formed North Peace Community Resources Society (NPCRS) and elected the first volunteer Board of Directors in May of 1974.
