We're a registered charity with a long history of providing services in the Central and South Okanagan.
Our goal is to respond to the underlying issues of crime and to support people at risk of becoming criminalized. To meet our goal and address the multifaceted needs of those we serve, The John Howard Society provides outreach and housing for individuals with FASD and other developmental disabilities, offers a wide-range of justice programs, such as Restorative Justice or Shoplifting Prevention, to a continuum of supportive and affordable housing options, and employment programs for at-risk youth and persons with disabilities.
What we believe in
Autonomous non-government voluntary organizations have a vital role in the criminal justice process and in building healthy communities. The criminal justice process must include preventative measures, effective reintegration, and seek to resolve conflicts, repair harm, and restore peaceful relations in society by addressing underlying issues.
