ABOUT US


We're a social service agency, registered charity, and proud member of the United Way that has operated in the central and south Okanagan for over 60 years.    

Our goal is to understand and respond to the underlying issues of crime and to work with people who have come into conflict with the law or are at risk of involvement in the criminal justice system.  Utilizing both harm-reduction and person-centered approaches, we support people from assorted circumstances and needs including, but not limited to, the presence of neurodevelopmental disability, substance misuse, and mental illness. 

We offer a range of innovative programs and services including affordable and supportive housing, employment programs, outreach programs, restorative justice, and even a social enterprise cafe.  Explore our website to find out more about these programs and how to get connected to them.

Our programs and services are made possible as a result of the combined drive and effort of staff and volunteers, interagency collaboration, partnerships with funders, support by the community, and by the amazing and resilient people we serve.
