We have launched our 2014/2015 Healthy Together year by re-connecting with our partner  sites for the second year of implementing and evaluating the Healthy Together program. So who are our new friends? Let’s meet them one at a time and learn a bit about each organization coming on board.

Today I would like to introduce you to Kootenay Family Place.

Kootenay Family Place LogoKootenay Family Place (KFP) was incorporated on January 17, 1972 as a non-profit organization with charitable status. At that time the society had four staff and provided a small child care program called Hobbit Hill Children’s Centre.

KFP now offers 14 different programs in five locations. We employ over 45 full and part time staff who serve children, youth and families throughout the West Kootenay and Boundary Region.

Mission Statement: Kootenay Family Place is a registered non-profit organization with charitable status committed to serving the needs of children, youth, and families throughout the West Kootenay Boundary region.

KFP will build on current programs, based on priorities established in consultation with the community and the service network.  It will diversify its funding, services, volunteer, and staff base in order to provide a wide range of quality services in the West Kootenay Boundary region.
To learn more about this organization have a look at their website.

Welcome to our team!

Stay tuned for the next introduction as we meet the second of our five new partners.
