Sooke Emergency Support Services are community volunteers available to assist their neighbours in their time of need. Whether it is one home affected by a fire or flood or an entire neigbourhood threatened by a forest fire, ESS volunteers are trained and able to provide aid, comfort and basic needs to residents of the community through those first critical hours of a disaster.
As part of Sooke's Emergency Program, this volunteer group is a division of Sooke Fire Rescue Service.

Toastmasters International motto: Where Leaders are Made Survey after survey shows that presentation skills are crucial to success in the workplace.
Many people pay high fees for seminars to gain the skill and confidence necessary to face an audience. Toastmasters provides an option that is inexprensive and held in high regard in business circles. This organization has been around for more than 85 years and offers a proven – and enjoyable – way to practice and hone communication and leadership skills.
Our Club accepted the "Lioness Bridging Program" offered by Lions International and "bridged" our "Lioness Club" (formerly Sooke Lioness Club) in September 2003 which became our official charter date. There were 25 original members of the newly formed Sooke Lioness Lions Club. On July 1, 2010 we re-named our club to the Sooke Harbourside Lions Club.
In 2011, 41 members are very active in the Sooke community, but work closely with Lions and Lioness Clubs in Multiple District 19 (British Columbia, Washington, and Northern Idaho).
The Sooke Home Learners’ Support Group is a non-profit association established to offer support to home learning families in the Sooke region. Our membership comprises families who follow diverse home learning paths – from unschooling to more traditional approaches to homelearning. Members provide support to one another through an email Hotline, monthly SSOS (Sooke Support or Socializing) meetings for the parents of home learners, group events and field trips held throughout the year and a membership directory for those who wish to participate.
Hope Centre is a joint venture between the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul of Vancouver Island (SSVP) and the M’akola Group of Societies (M’akola). It came about when the groups identified a need in Sooke to provide affordable housing for aboriginal and non-aboriginal homeless singles (both men and women), including provisions for youth.
Housing and services for those experiencing homelessness in the Capital Region are primarily focused in downtown Victoria. There is great demand in Sooke for affordable housing – especially for youth who have few local resources or supports.
