When life throws challenges,

we can all use some help to get us through the rough patches.

At Desert Sun Counselling and Resource Centre, we facilitate supportive programs to empower people of all ages to experience an enhanced quality of life in their homes, schools and communities.

We offer a wide variety of programs and resources for all ages. From counselling services to parenting supports, from anti-violence programs to crisis response, from aging-in-place programming to computer tutoring to so much more, Desert Sun offers simple, grassroots, personal resources that make life-changing differences in our community. We want to build hope today for individuals and families, and to build a stronger, more resilient community for a brighter tomorrow.

We are a registered non-profit. Thanks to the generous support of community members and funders, virtually all of our programs are free.
