Donate Now to Keep the Hub Open
Our goal is to raise $100,000 to keep this valuable resource open to help families.
Between now and June 14th we need your help! Here is what you can do:
- Make a donation. Donations can be made online and tax receipts will be made for all donations over $25.
- Organize an employee team building fundraiser – think Casual Fridays or BBQ Social
- Host a fundraiser or sale – clear out your garage or closets and hold a sale, or get the kids to run a Lemonade Stand and donate the proceeds to the Hub
- Challenge – follow in the Pearson Road Elementary PACs footsteps and Challenge someone in your world – your colleagues, or competitor or friends to match your donation
- Join us at the Family Hub on Friday, June 14th, from 7:30 am – 9:00 am for a Drive-Thru Breakfast sponsored by Peter’s Your Independent Grocer & Tim Hortons
Impact of the Hub over the first three years:
- 12,860 visitors
- 1617 referrals to over 35 community programs and services
- 583 group sessions offered by community agencies, including 233 sessions delivered by Indigenous and Metis agencies
- connected families in a culturally safe, welcoming and diverse space.
Inspired by the Social Justice Club at Rutland Elementary, who raised almost $1,300 because they saw the impact the Hub was making, the Do a Lot for a Little Campaign asks individuals, businesses and organizations to follow in these young leaders footsteps and make a commitment to the Central Okanagan Family Hub.
What is the Hub?
The Central Okanagan Family Hub is a one-stop shop to access family services and community supports. No barriers, child-friendly, welcoming and free.
The Hub was born through the collaboration of 20 child-serving agencies, families and funders to create a one-stop shop for vulnerable families to access services, resources and community supports.
KCR Community Resources is the lead agency for the Central Okanagan Family Hub and works with the Leadership Team that represents a variety of child-serving agencies, School District #23 and community leaders.
Families are resilient, healthy and well connected within our community.
