Nelson and Area Friends of the Family Foundation – Kootenay Area

The Nelson and Area Friends of the Family Foundation was started in 2000 as a result of some local families wanting to give back to the community which helped them during their own time of crisis. The Foundation’s purpose quickly led to assisting families with emergency travel costs due to their child’s illness or injury.

We understand the hurdles that show up as a result of such a crisis and would like to help where we can to minimize the effects. Please check all of our pages here to see how we can help you.
