Nonprofit debuts new look

The Penticton and District Community Resource Society has a new identity.

In front of about 100 people at the Lakeside Resort, the nonprofit announced it has rebranded, and will now be known as OneSky Community Resources.

“As an organization, we’ve been growing and diversifying quickly,” board president Lesley Dyck said, explaining that even staff within the nonprofit — over 200 of them — have trouble explaining what PDCRS is to an outside community member.

“We wondered about how can we better tell the story of our organization, both to ourselves and the community,” she said. “If we don’t do a good job of telling our story, the world will tell us our story.”

The nonprofit offers a wide range of resources ranging from daycare, to programming for adults with developmental disabilities, youth and family counselling, harm reduction and other community development initiatives.

The group will be an anchor tenant at the new youth centre going in on Main St., providing resources of all kinds to young people.

“Every day we assist hundreds of people in dozens of communities — helping them achieve dignity, resilience and well being at every stage of life,” executive director Tanya Behardien said, reading from the group’s new “story.”

“Guided by our belief that we’re all in this together, living under a single sky, our goal is to create a way forward for everyone.”
