Community services building on Mary up for sale

But services from ESL, to immigrant settlement or the Better at Home program will still be offered at the same location

A building on Mary Street owned by Chilliwack Community Services to provide immigrant services and more went up for sale this month.

But the services ranging from ESL instruction, to immigrant settlement or the Better at Home program will all stay in place at the downtown location, said James Challman, executive director of CCS.

“We are committed to carrying on business as usual, despite proposed changes in ownership,” he said.

They’ll continue to use Mary Street location in the foreseeable future by virtue of a new five-year lease agreement. The goal of selling the asset is to gain better flexibility for the organization.

Ownership of the building “no longer fits the organization’s operating model,” said the ED, and increased cash flow is needed address the organization’s future growth plans.

The property is listed at a price of $935,000.

“We appreciate your patience and understanding during this transition,” said Challman.

CCS has owned the building since 2008.

“The decision to sell reflects our organization’s vision of being a leading provider of services in the community,” said Challman.
