SWC mandate change causes financial emergency

Emergency grant needed for Kelowna Women's Resource Centre
Kelowna City Council will provide a $5,000 emergency grant to the Women's Resource Centre. The emergency funds, for the Centre's Drop-In Information and Referral program, became necessary due to a temporary funding shortfall. An annual $25,000 grant from the Status of Women Canada has been delayed due to a change in mandate. Those funds should be in place within the next few months. In the meantime, the Resource Centre has covered the shortfall from reserve funds and support from community service clubs.
