What is The Care Centre?
The Care Centre is a division of NightShift Street Ministries, a charitable non-profit society, offering nightly outreach to the local community of Surrey. Since the inception of The Care Centre, in 2010, we have offered hundreds of hours of counselling each year on a sliding scale basis, to make professional therapeutic counselling accessible to anyone who asked.
The Care Centre mission
Our mission is to empower our clients to live life with greater healing and wholeness. It was inspired by the scriptures in Isaiah 61 that speaks of being empowered by the Holy Spirit to “bind up the broken hearted” and 1 Peter 5:7 that assures us that God cares for us. The Care Centre counsellors are trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, but in addition to that, they hope to provide a place where people from all walks of life will find the care of their Heavenly Father and receive the healing and wholeness that is available through Him.
Clients of The Care Centre
The Care Centre is for individuals from all walks of life. We welcome new clients from the general public, local businesses, churches, government or community organizations and website inquiries. Our counsellors work with men, women, teens or children, individually or as couples, families or other groups. Counselling is available to everyone regardless of background, financial status and spiritual beliefs.
Counselling is available during office hours (9 am – 5 pm), Monday to Friday, as well as by arrangement on Saturdays and some evenings. We can also provide off-site counselling services for individual or group sessions – for example, at your place of business or church, as long as you have a private office or boardroom to accommodate the visit. Contact us to book an appointment at The Care Centre or to enquire about off-site services.
The Care Centre provides accessible and affordable professional therapy. Hourly counselling fees range from $30-$120, depending on the credentials of the counsellor. If you have extended health coverage, you may be reimbursed for your counselling fees depending on your extended health provider. Otherwise, a sliding scale is available, upon request, based on household income, and the number of dependents supported by that income. (Proof of income is required in order to qualify.)
We are actively seeking sponsors! Please consider partnering with us financially to make this valuable service available to anyone in need.
We have a 24-hours’ cancellation policy, so there is no charge if you change or cancel your appointment at least 24 hours ahead of your appointment time. Please notify the office as soon as possible if you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment. If you change your appointment with less than 24-hours’ notice, the regular one-hour fee will be charged.
We warmly welcome you on behalf of The Care Centre team!
