Resources for Parents

The Hub Facilitator's role is to connect parents to the over 300 services currently available to them in the Kelowna area. Throughout the process, they will reduce barriers that inhibit parents from accessing the community support networks. Who do I call? How do I get there? What form do I need to fill out? Do I qualify for a particular service?

While building trusting and meaningful relationships with parents, the hub facilitator will be able to steer participants in the right direction and be a mentor/advocate at each and every step of the process.

Below are some examples of the resources that parents have been supported in accessing:

  • Food
  • Housing/Shelter
  • Employment
  • Household needs
  • Early Years programming
  • School information
  • Child behaviour
  • Medical support
  • Hearing/speech & language
  • Glasses
  • Counselling
  • Mental Health
  • Autism services
  • ADHD services and support
  • Aboriginal services
  • Single parent supports
  • Parenting (general)
  • Grandparent supports
  • Immigrant services
  • Recreational activities
  • Child care
  • Transportation
  • Women's Wellness
  • Nutrition information
  • Jewish family support
  • Personal relationships

This is not a definitive list. There are many other services that you can be connected through at the hub.
