Family Support & Resources

The families of our community represent the future of the LGBTQ2+ movement and the legacy to maintain a safe and responsible communal group that will support the South Okanagan and Similkameen region for generations to come. Below you can find vital support resources and information about youth support.

Access Centre

The Access Centre changes lives through poverty advocacy, awareness, and action. The barriers that Access Centre clients face often feel insurmountable to them. We work with them to break down those barriers step by step so that they can move forward in their lives.
