Drastic changes for support agency

Over the past year, the Living Positive Resource Centre has been a topic of hot debate within the media, Interior Health and other service providers in Kelowna and with the public at large.

Over the past year, the Living Positive Resource Centre has been a topic of hot debate within the media, Interior Health and other service providers in Kelowna and with the public at large.

Since September 2010, the board members and staff at the resource centre have undergone a drastic change.

Plagued by uncertainty and rumours, like a Phoenix, the resource centre has risen from the ashes with a new identity.

Over the past nine months, the centre has undergone great change, starting with the appointment of Clare Overton as the new executive director, replacing Daryle Roberts.

Contracts have since been renewed or extended with Interior Health.

In addition, the resource centre has moved into a new location at 168 Asher Rd. in Rutland.

To help celebrate the new office location, the  board of directors and the staff at the centre invite the public to an open house today, from 2 to 4 p.m. Beryl Itani, the new chair of the board of directors, and Overton will be on hand.

Other staff members will be available to answer questions and outline the centre’s future objectives.

“So please, come down and support one of the most promising not-for-profit societies in the Central Okanagan,” says Colby Johnson, the board vice-chairman.

“We would love to see yours and the community’s support in celebrating this momentous change.”
