Community Wellness Centre
Covid-19 update: During the pandemic, our on-site wellness centre is closed for everyone’s safety and health. However, we can refer clients to available resources over the phone or when they visit to pick up their food.
Please also see our post with a list of resources in Richmond that may benefit you or someone you know.
Many of the people we serve need help accessing social services. We’re happy to connect them with vital community services in our Community Wellness Centre.
Our Community Wellness Centre is open during each of our Grocery Distributions (but closed during the pandemic). Retired community nurses, student nurses from UBC and BCIT, social workers, and specially-trained referral volunteers help our neighbours in need to access health, mental health, and community services. RFB Community Wellness Centre volunteers also help the people we serve access job training, employment initiatives, and housing.
In addition to offering connections to social services, the Community Wellness Centre offers blood pressure, nutrition, and sun safety clinics frequently, and dental services and hearing screening twice annually.
On occasion, the Community Wellness Centre also hosts local social service agencies and other community partners including:
- Family Services of Greater Vancouver
- Immigrant Services Society of BC
- Pathways Clubhouse
- Richmond Addictions Services Society
- Richmond Centre for Disability
- Richmond Poverty Reduction Coalition (previously Richmond Poverty Response Committee)
- Richmond Youth Service Agency
- Touchstone Family Association
- Turning Point Recovery Society
- Urban Bounty
Please Contact Us if your social service agency would like to have a booth (either for one or several of our grocery distributions).
