SHARE Family & Community Services Society started as a children’s clothing exchange in 1972 in the basement of founders Gertie Grosser’s home and quickly became a focal point for community members who wanted to help themselves and their neighbours with life’s challenges.
Today SHARE is a non-profit, independent, community based organization providing leadership and programs in response to the social needs of the residents of the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra), New Westminster and adjacent communities.

Our Mission Statement
SHARE exists to connect, engage, and strengthen individuals and families.
Our vision is a strong community that welcomes everyone to live, participate, contribute, and reach their full potential.
We value and support collaboration that builds respect, trust, and relationships with each individual and with the community
We are generous when we act unconditionally, without judgement, and without prejudice.
We work to strengthen each individual we serve, as well as the services themselves, the agency and our community: everyone is welcomed and everyone belongs.
We act with hope when we mind a way forward, drawing on our resilience, abundance, creativity and innovation.
We act with honesty and transparency: acting in the best interest of client, each other and the agency, making evidence based unbiased decisions.
We acknowledge and build on the strengths of each individual and each family.
