Collective Community Services (CCS) is a not-for-profit community organization, which develops and provides a continuum of support services primarily in English for families and individuals of diverse ages, cultures and religions in the Greater Montreal area. We work in collaboration with our clients, community partners, volunteers and staff, offering innovative programs which foster self-reliance through empowerment.


CCS has served Montreal for 85 years as a private-sector social agency. Originally incorporated in 1932 as Catholic Welfare Bureau Inc., CCS has adapted to better meet the needs of the diversified communities we serve. Today, we refer to ourselves as Collective Community Services. We are located in Verdun and work primarily in the Sud Ouest borough of Montreal.


CCS improves the quality of life of individuals by significantly reducing isolation and effectively supporting those living in poverty, primarily within the English speaking community of Greater Montreal.


The volunteers and staff of CCS endeavour daily to give individuals living in poverty or isolation within the English speaking community, a safe and caring place to turn to.
