WHO WE ARE

The COVID-19 crisis has brought sudden challenges, uncertainty, and opportunities to social purpose organizations and community movements. In Kamloops and region, we learned that these organizations and movements were seeking help understanding what others are doing in community, help with fundraising, and help navigating resources, including government supports. A team of volunteers in Kamloops started CHANGELINK to help these organizations.
