The Journey Home Society, which is working to end homelessness in Kelowna, has six new board members and has surpassed the $1-million mark in its $2.7-million fundraiser.
New on the board are: Murray Bye of FH&P Lawyers, Josh Cairns from Crew Marketing Partners, Ken Gauthier of Urban Matters, Debbie Hubbard from DH Consulting, Helen Jackman of the United Way and Donna Jansons from Interior Health.
They join society chair Kyleen Myrah of Okanagan College and existing board members Shane Worman of Worman Construction, Diane Roy from Westbank First Nation, Scott Lanigan of Trinity Church and Dave Krysko from Davara Enterprises.
“The outcome is that our board includes a broad spectrum of community and business leaders who are dedicated to contributing their energy into implementing the Journey Home strategy,” said society executive director Gaelene Askeland.
“They are a reflection of our community — the community that came together during the Journey Home process and vowed to work together to reach functional zero homelessness by 2024,” Askeland said.
