"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe" 

Anatole France


We have accomplished a great many things because we dared to dream and had an unwavering belief in our vision.  To restore is to put back to one's original condition, we strive not to restore but to take adversity and build resilience.  In fostering resilience, the focus is on building capacity, empathy, and caring.


As an organization that embodies all that resilience stands for, we have made a concerted effort to build upon strategic priorities that support growth and change in a meaningful way.  One such example is the tremendous opportunity embraced when joining forces with the East Kootenay Humanity Network.  Another example is the collaborative efforts undertaken in reaching an MOU with the Ktunaxa Nation Council to support restorative practices.  We all win when we work together towards a greater common good.


We wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our volunteers, members, funding bodies, board of directors, and referral agents. A huge THANK YOU goes out to our devoted program contractors Doug McPhee (CDRJS) and Amy Cross (EK- Humanity Network), thank you for keeping the ship floating and on course!!


We are always looking for new energy to join our team, and help us carry out this important work.  We are currently seeking members for the board and invite you to try it out!!
