Our ServicesKCR is a multi-service agency offering programs and projects in four over-arching areas:
Community Services for the Central OkanaganWe serve the Central Okanagan through our Community Services, connecting all to volunteer opportunities and resources in our community.
We offer support services to children in care, their families, adoptive parents and birth parents.
Further ServicesYou may be eligible for public assistance, such as a subsidy for childcare services or income assistance. During the intake process, staff will discuss the various forms of assistance that may be available to you and assist you in accessing public assistance should you require it.
For your information on other community services, KCR manages a Community Resource Directory listing all non-profit and government services in the Central Okanagan. Click to download a sample of the directory’s table of contents, or call us to purchase your copy.
Accommodating Special Needs and RequestsAs part of our commitment to providing accessible services to all participants, we make efforts to minimize the impact of potential barriers to participating in services. We do our best to accommodate needs related to disabilities or special requests related to how we deliver our services, such as a request for a staff person with specific characteristics.
If you have a disability that requires some accommodation or a request you would like to make, please contact us and ask to fill out a request form, or,
