Our Mission: To identify and provide support to those residents most in need. To ensure suitable accommodation and access to basic living needs to be safe, secure and productive in our community.
To coordinate funding from government, non-profit groups and any other donations to work to these ends, in whatever way necessary.
The North Shuswap Disaster Relief Society has the goal of connecting those in need with funds and services to help. We can’t help everyone affected by this fire, but we can work with those most in need, and do our best to get you to a point where you’re warm, safe and fed through the winter. Any assistance provided by the Society will pay suppliers to help you. There are no cash grants direct to the applicant.
