Welcome to my project. I am a fourth-year Bachelor of Social Work student at Thompson Rivers University. My final project of this educational journey is to create this website. The intention of this site is for it to be an educational, supportive and resourceful guide to living in Kamloops.
Some of the most important things to me in this stage of my life are affordability, accessibility, the local economy, the environment, equality and ethics. With these values in mind, I have created this platform to share ideas on how to live in Kamloops on a low or non-existent budget.
Please peruse through the pages that I have poured my heart into. My intention is to make Kamloops as accessible as possible, and to create options for people to overcome some daunting barriers that they may face at any moment in their lives.
At this time, I have chosen not to include very many government-based resources. These resources often come with many barriers, including oppressive and often triggering interview processes and paperwork through this avenue. For the time being, I have chosen to focus on local organizations and resources with less rigid expectations of people.
The resources I have chosen to research will be based on low barrier, low or no cost. Please note that while I share a multitude of ideas for environmental sustainability, financial affordability, economic sustainability
The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Secwepemc (Shuswap)
Peoples, who today are a Nation made up of 17 bands.
