Thrive Williams Lake

This project brings together community stakeholders, existing networks, and people with lived experience to implement a community poverty reduction strategy. With an industry based economy, we have an economic environment with a lot of variability. We are also a regional centre providing government, health, education and other services to a large rural region. Poverty here is high, as is the cost of living in comparison with other communities our size. We have low levels of education and a gap between skills availability and economic opportunities. We will work together to identify opportunities to reduce the number of people who live in poverty, and the depth of poverty in our community.

Growing Great Kids Out of Homelessness with Peer Support

Growing Great Kids Out of Homelessness With Peer Support proposes training & employing women who participate in programming at EFry as peer project advisors. Through the opportunity to experience themselves as co-creators of safe, supportive environments, women & children can restore their health & well-being while offering invaluable expertise regarding innovative approaches that have the potential to shift the paradigm of mother-child separation within correctional settings & beyond. Led by women affected by the issue, this participatory research project will create new knowledge & contribute to new policies necessary to make it possible for all people to not only matter but to thrive.
