BSOSS IS A REGISTERED NON-PROFIT SOCIETY IN BRITISH COLUMBIA
Since our inception in 1987 as a charitable organization, BSOSS, through our peer counselling and related activities, has been providing emotional support and encouragement to older citizens of Burnaby, assisting them to enhance their quality of life, to develop problem management strategies and to maintain the greatest level of independence and dignity possible.
The society is directed by a voluntary Board, all of whom are seniors, coordinated by part-time staff, and functions with a dedicated corps of service volunteers.
BSOSS funding comes primarily from special fund raising activities, membership dues, a Community Gaming grant and other government and foundation grants for specific programmes, and donations from individuals and community organizations.
