Kelowna, British Columbia
In 1998 the SA Foundation was called to Kelowna to provide training on our program model as this city was experiencing an influx of young women in the sex trade, mainly trafficked by bike gangs. At that time there were no recovery services for these young women and so a partnership was formed and training, curriculum and support were provided over a 3-year period.
Today, NOW Canada continues to provide front-line programs and services for women and youth who have experienced addictions, abuse, sexual exploitation and mental health challenges.
Services are provided in a safe and welcoming environment, allowing participants to embark on the road to recovery with dignity. Their unique comprehensive continuum of care supports participants from the first moment they connect with their programs until they are confident and secure enough to transition to independence.
