KCR will be moving to a new location at 620 Leon Avenue in Kelowna. Staff currently operating from four (4) separate sites will be together, which fulfils a long-term vision and strategic plan of the Board of Directors.
Services will be somewhat limited throughout the move that will begin December 21st and will be completed by January 9th.
“Bringing staff together will enhance our work culture as we all get to know one another better,” said Ellen Boelcke, Executive Director. “Working from the same site will create a larger sense of team. Departments will be more able to share information and cross-training of staff will be easier. Ultimately, this move will increase our service quality”, Boelcke added.
One location means that KCR is easier to find. Participants, service providers, funders and stakeholders will have access to all KCR staff, programs, and services. Transportation access by public transit and major thoroughfares is improved. A downtown site is more centralized within the Central Okanagan region for people traveling from Lake Country or Peachland.
“KCR has served our community for 33 years and our investment in a single location that houses all employees, volunteers and programming confirms our continued commitment to serve the Central Okanagan and beyond,” said Rob Peter, KCR Board President.
