Every dollar of your donation stays in central and northern Vancouver Island, building stronger communities, helping kids succeed, and moving families out of poverty.
Together, we continue to work tirelessly to support our communities.
Reaching Home Funding Now Available!
If your agency is working to prevent and reduce homelessness, you may be eligible for funding through Reaching Home. Funding applications are open to agencies in the Cowichan Valley Regional District, city of Duncan, and city of Nanaimo. In the wake of BC's state of emergency and the impact of flooding in local communities, the funding application deadline has been extended to November 25th.
Additional funding is also available for capital projects in the Cowichan Region.
