Volunteer Centre: KCR launches new website

All of us at Kelowna Community Resources are excited about our new website. We listened to your suggestions and have come up with a way to get you where you want to go on our website within three clicks.

We are reaching out to people world-wide who are interested in moving to our community. Clicking on a flag turns on the Global Translator so that content can be read in the official language of any one of 48 countries.

We are writing more simply so that translations are more accurate and reading is easier. Icons, colour, larger type sizes and point form help make information quicker to find and scan.

The magnifying glass at the Community Information Search and the Volunteer Opportunities Search lets you find programs and services anywhere in the Central Okanagan.

The Crisis Line phone number and link connect people with immediate needs to help quickly.

Dark blue tabs with white printing lets you find our home page, more information about KCR, our brochures and other publications, as well as our blog and news. Four of these tabs give information about our programs and services for our community, families, adoptive and birth parents, as well as newcomers from other nations.

We are adding photos, videos, blogging, texting and tweeting to our site. We want to share with you what we are doing so you pass this along to your family and friends.

Explore our new site and see what we have to offer. Send us ideas about how we can make more improvements.

Let us know about any gaps in programs and services in the Central Okanagan that KCR might be able to fill. At Kelowna Community Resources, we want to work towards a community where individuals and families are supported in leading healthy, productive and fulfilling lives.

If you are looking for other ways to get involved in the Central Okanagan, check out the Kelowna Community Resources new website at www.kcr.ca and click on Community Information Search.
