Welcome! All of us at KCR are excited about our new website. We listened to your suggestions and have come up with aÂ wayÂ to get you where you want to go on our website within 3 clicks. This new design alsoÂ gives us the ability to useÂ online tools as they evolveÂ so that you can get the information you need in the way that works for you. What will you find?
First Things First
We are reaching out to people world-wide who are interested in moving to our community. Clicking on a flag turns on the Global Translator so that content can be read in the official language of any one of 48 countries. We are writing more simply so that translations are more accurate and reading is easier.Â Icons, colour, larger type sizesÂ and point formÂ help make informationÂ quickerÂ to find and scan.
A Place for Everything
Our logo links youÂ to our home page and so does the icon of a house. The magnifying glassÂ at theÂ Community Information Search and the Volunteer Opportunities SearchÂ let youÂ findÂ programs and services anywhere in the Central Okanagan. The Crisis LineÂ phone number andÂ linkÂ connect people with immediate needsÂ to helpÂ quickly. Dark blue tabs with white printing lets you findÂ our home page,Â more information about KCR, ourÂ brochures and other publications, as well as our blog and news. Four of these tabs give information about our programsÂ and services for ourÂ community, families,Â adoptive and birthÂ parents, as well as newcomers from other nations.
Sight, Sound and Social
We are adding photos, videos, blogging, texting and tweeting to our site. We want to share with you what we are doing so you pass this along to your family and friends.
Let Us Know What You Think
Explore our new site and see what we have to offer. Send us ideas about how we can make more improvements. Let us know about any gaps in programs and services in the Central Okanagan that KCR might be able to fill. At Kelowna Community Resources, we want to work towards a community where individuals and families are supported in leading healthy, productive and fulfilling lives.
