The North Okanagan ECD Coalition works together to ensure the region’s communities work for families with young children.

“We plan and implement strategies to ensure that children and their families are supported, included and have every chance to be successful and engaged community members,” said Lynne Reside, co-ordinator of the North Okanagan organization.

“This includes initiatives to support parent education, reduce family poverty, ensure children are ready for school and achieve success in life.

“We work with the community to ensure that families have access to affordable housing, food security, quality affordable child care, and safe healthy places to play. We support local initiatives that promote all children’s rights.”
