The Okanagan Boys and Girls Club has long been a staple in communities around the Okanagan valley. Their service and dedication to families has helped youth at over thirty locations in the Okanagan, including children with special needs. Although each location has a supportive environment for children with special needs, the Summerland, Vernon, and Armstrong locations each have programs that help youth integrate themselves in the community and learn skills that will help them live alone or semi-independently. For more information about these programs, please visit the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club website in order to find the best way to contact each club.

The staff is knowledgeable in all available product lines and are always happy to help you find a product to help suit your mobility, bath safety, and sports medicine needs, as well as many others. Their goal is to help people with medical needs live a full and productive life, and for twenty-four years they’ve been doing an excellent job of fulfilling that goal.
