The Kamloops & District Elizabeth Fry Society is an active community based non-profit agency that offers programs and services in the areas of housing and community justice to people in the Kamloops area, with a focus on women and youth.
Our goal is to provide effective programs, services and public education to contribute in building a healthy and safe community by minimizing barriers that individuals may experience, by meeting the diverse needs of marginalized people in the community, and by fostering the individual's personal growth and self sufficiency.
We offer a wide range of programs and services to people who are, or could be, in conflict with the law, who have housing related needs, and who are at risk of marginalization. Our programs work to address issues related to poverty, homelessness and criminalization on an individual, social and structural level.
We provide housing, advocacy, education, support and resources to individuals in the community.
We believe in the worth of individuals and work to improve the lives and circumstances of those who access our programs and services.
The Kamloops and District Elizabeth Fry Society is a member of the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies (CAEFS), the national association of Elizabeth Fry Societies.
I am Small and scared
I wonder Can I reach the stars
I hear Warriors falling
I see Moving mountains
I want A billion dollars
I pretend I fly above the rest
I feel Gravity crushing me
I touch Loved ones souls
I worry for my mother
I cry When I Think of Lost Friends
I am Small and Scared
I understand In life there is death
I say We all have a door to open
I dream of partying with friends
I try To be better
I hope I get through life
- Former client of Elizabeth Fry
"If you have come here to help me you are wasting your time
But if you have come here because your liberation is bound up with mine
Then lets work together."
