Welcome to the John Howard Society of the North Okanagan/Kootenay Region of BC’s new website!

Take your time and browse through our website. You will find information on the services and programs we provide as well as details on the behind the scenes work we do to strengthen our community.

We provide Work BC employment services to citizens who have barriers to employment. We will walk with you to take the steps necessary to find gainful employment or fulfilling volunteerism.

We provide a number of programs aimed at supporting people living with addiction and seeking recovery. There are different paths you can take and when you are ready we will work with you to take the steps necessary. We provide residential addiction's treatment, supported recovery housing, supported harm reduction housing and intervention services.

We provide housing, supported housing and a homeless prevention program.

We also provide programs geared towards supporting people who are absolutely homeless through our two shelters and our homeless outreach program.

It is through relationships and shared visions with stakeholders that we serve our community with public safety, housing, employment, shelter and addictions recovery services as our top priorities.
