Society thanks COF

BC Life Builders Rehabilitation Society wants to publicly thank the Central Okanagan Foundation and its generous donors for the Fall Project grant funding we received last fall (2020) in the amount of $10,000 for our Learning for Confident Living project.

The program was in place from November 2020 through Oct. 31, 2021.

The funding made it possible for residents of our group home on Ethel Street in Kelowna to learn and practice new life skills, access educational opportunities both online and in-person, learn, practice social and communication skills and enhance social interaction within the home and in the greater community.

Our residents are more skilled, more confident and more resilient in facing the challenges of life thanks to the funding we received.

BC Life Builders Rehabilitation Society is a not-for-profit organization that meets the needs of our residents by providing food, shelter and community for people who live with mental health challenges.

It was founded in 1981 by Lori Lange and other volunteers and was registered as a charitable society in September 1997. Since then, this society has operated a supportive, independent-living home for a significant number of Kelowna residents.

Our objectives are to support the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health of our residents, assisting them in rebuilding their lives, regaining their life skills, and recovering with awareness, love, acceptance, and respect.

Our mission is to provide food, shelter, and a caring community for those who struggle with isolation and who would otherwise be in danger of homelessness.

Again, we want to thank the Central Okanagan Foundation for recognizing the important work our society does in support of vulnerable individuals with mental health challenges, by granting us this important funding.

We are grateful to the Central Okanagan Foundation and their generous donors for making this possible.

Bonny Koehn, board member, BC Life Builders Rehabilitation Society
