Extra informationHOPE is low time commitment, but makes a huge impact on women's lives. You can take a shift once a week or once every 3 months. It's only 1-2h evenings and weekends and a great chance to make a one-on-one impact with the women in our community who are in need.
H.O.P.E is a caring, trained volunteer group committed to helping women enhance their current and future existence. Our objective is to help women realize their own dreams of living a safe and healthy life.
We are a growing organization that provides night time outreach to homeless and/or sexually exploited women in Kelowna & Vernon B.C.'s downtown core. We have a wide variety of volunteers ranging from students to business professionals to experiential recovered women.
Real Property Management Executives was proud to attend the Hope in Her Eyes fundraising gala on Friday to celebrate International Women’s Day...a moving and meaningful collaboration between H.O.P.E. Okanagan and Her International. This powerful partnership is saving the lives and igniting the spirits of women not only on the streets of Kelowna, but also in the impoverished communities of Nepal. It is truly humbling to be in the presence of humans who give so much of themselves to evoke change. Thank you Her international and HOPE for not only making the world a better place to be, but also for inspiring us to ask ourselves what we can do to be make a difference, too.

Pihl Law Corporation has a program that allows staff to dress casually on Fridays if they donate a dollar to a fund that gets distributed to different charities based on employee votes. This fund got a little boost through our GivingTuesday campaign in 2017 and we were able to raise a total of $3,393! Employees have voted to distribute this fund equally between Inn From the Cold - Kelowna, H.O.P.E. Okanagan, and Kelowna Women's Shelter! What a fun way to support the causes our employees are passionate about!

When I was enrolled in my management degree at UBCO - University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus, I was very involved with on-campus extra curricular activities. In my second year, I got involved with the '5 Days for the Homeless' campaign. This experience opened my eyes to the homelessness problem in my community.
Which cause are you most passionate about and why?
I am most passionate about my work with the homeless and exploited women and girls in my community. I believe that a community is only as strong as its weakest member and that it is our duty to come together and support our most vulnerable community members.
