PLEA is an accredited* community services agency that has operated throughout BC for more than 30 years. We deliver high quality, innovative services to children, youth, adults and families facing significant challenges in their lives. We continually adapt our programs to suit each individual’s diverse strengths, needs and circumstances.
Our focus ranges from preventative – helping children and youth at-risk make good choices under challenging circumstances – to intensive – providing specialized residential services to youth, and adults who are unable to live on their own. We have more than 195 employees, 130 family caregivers and 200 volunteers. The number of lives we directly touch every year is counted in the thousands.
