Our Core Services
Challenges can have multiple layers and affect people’s lives in different ways. Our program staff work collaboratively with each other and our partner organizations to get people the help they need.
The Story of CCRC
In 1956 and 1971 the Catholic Social Service Bureau & the Volunteers and Information Peterborough agencies were formed by groups of concerned local citizens who saw a need for services. Those groups were comprised of volunteers, community leaders and clergy who wanted to make life better for people in their communities.
They joined forces
The two organizations formally became the Family Counselling Services and Volunteers and Information Peterborough in 1998, then Community Counselling and Resource Centre in 2001. The organization shortened its moniker to CCRC in 2016.
Under one Roof
In June 2021, all of CCRC’s services moved to 540 George St North so that programs and services could all be delivered out of one location.
In May 2021, CCRC closed it’s Credit Counselling Services program due to changes in the industry. In March 2023, CCRC’s Community Service Orders program closed.
