About Us

LIVING POSITIVE RESOURCE CENTRE, OKANAGAN

Having started as an HIV/AIDS service organization in 1992, we have since expanded our mandate to serve individuals in the Central Okanagan living with and/or at risk of HIV, Hepatitis C, and other STBBIs experiencing concerns relating to housing, income, nutrition, health care, addictions and mental health.

Living Positive Resource Centre recognizes the value and dignity of each individual.  We encourage and support our clients to make healthy choices, and we respect the choices that they make.  We work with and on behalf of our clients to improve their quality of life.

We believe that all individuals deserve equity in accessibility. We collaborate with community partners and actively participate in community efforts to ensure that basic human rights are protected.

Living Positive believes that harm reduction promotes and supports the health and well-being of both individuals and communities. We believe that all humans have the right to comprehensive, non-judgmental services based on individual need. Through education and prevention efforts, we work to reduce the risk of harms to individuals and the community.
