We are very fortunate to have a team of Volunteers delivering (if and when needed) the Emergency Social Services program (ESS) to residents of Cortes Island. Over the past while it has become clear that our name, and in particular the use of the word “Social” has caused some confusion within our communities. The reality is that our Volunteers can deliver services that “support” our communities and individuals in need due to emergencies. We are also available to support Emergency First Responders while they perform their duties. To recognize this fact, our Team has decided that it is time to modify our name.

Accordingly, our services will now be called “Emergency Support Services”.

Please feel free if you have any questions on the ESS program.
