CATCH Research Projects

Learning About Families Connection to Services research project

This project has its roots in the community and started in December 2012 with a community meeting.  All reports can be found below.  Phase 1 was engaging agencies in the Central Okanagan.   During April 2014 we engaged participants in Phase 2, learning about community experiences with accessing programs and services.  The Phase 2 report was released in February 2015.

A Community Working Forum was held April 22, 2015 with the goal to have a community dialogue on the results of our Learning About Families Connections with Services research project, and to provide tools to support attendees in their facilitation of conversations with their community group. 

We intend to have a community follow up event in the Fall of 2015 to share our experiences with these group conversations.
