Who is involved?
The Government of British Columbia currently has Family Hubs in 47 communities in BC and more are in the planning stages, including one in West Kelowna. Hosted by Kelowna Community Resources, the Central Okanagan Family Hub is the product of collaboration by over two dozen agencies and receives funding from several sources.
The provincial government has pledged $52,000 a year over the next five years while the Southern Interior BC United Way will provide $97,000 over the next three. The City of Kelowna has provided a one-time grant of $9,550 and School District 23 is providing space free of charge.
