KCR offers two programs that focus on adoption services.Adoption Centre of British Columbia
As a licensed adoption agency, we offer services for both adoptive and birth parents, following the same guidelines and standards as the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD). Even though our administrative office is located in Kelowna, BC, you can access our services wherever you are in BC as we have registered social workers available throughout the province.
**Note: our services are only available to residents of British Columbia.
The ‘Supports and Networking for Adoption and Permanency Planning’ program (SNAPP), formerly known as the ‘Special Needs Adoption Program’ has, since 1989, been an integral component of services provided to Central Okanagan children who are in the continuing custody of the Director of the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) and have been referred to be considered for adoption and permanency planning. This program area is founded on the belief that all children need and deserve the opportunity to grow up in a family that can provide them with permanence and an unconditional, life-long commitment. SNAPP has expanded to include the South Okanagan and the South Fraser regions in recent years.
