Putting their name on it for the community

The Eureka Support Society is showing off with a new sign

Putting their name on it, the Eureka Support Society wants the community to know exactly where they are.

The Eureka Support Society has been a prominent fixture on Fourth Street in downtown Courtenay, and their clubhouse, which offers programming for individuals living with serious and persistent mental illnesses, offers hope and opportunities to achieve their full potential.

Located at 280 4th Street, the centre has more than 100 members from the Valley and now has a new sign to showcase their building, which executive director Dean Thompson explained will let the community know more clearly who the Eureka Support Society is and where they are located.

With more than 100 members, the society is the only remaining non-government program in the Comox Valley providing support to adults with mental illness, and provides daily lunch and a variety of educational, vocational, social and recreational activities daily, according to the needs and interests of its members.
