Hey everyone, for those of you who might have missed it…here’s a link to an article about the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) program that ran in the Nelson Star on May 7, 2021, featuring some very kind words about us from one of our valued employees. Thanks Mahitha!
Hey everyone, don’t forget this coming Friday night is the Nelson Cares LIVE-STREAM SPOOKTACULAR!
Hey everyone, this week’s social distancing reminder is an invitation to the Nelson Cares LIVE-STREAM SPOOKTACULAR happening next Friday night!
In honour of Community Inclusion Month, we are going to try something different this Spook-tober…
We are going to have our most excellent DJ, Lucas, return for a live streaming Halloween music event on Friday October the 30th! The event will take place on zoom, and the log in is the same for any self-advocacy meeting (see poster below) Lucas will be sharing tunes while the rest of us can use the chat bar to converse and the video to show off our costumes and react together. Maybe folks will feel like dancing in their house or just listening is fine too.
Either way, please feel free to dress up, dance in your room, or have a little house party with your pod and enjoy the tunes together!
Hope to see you there, it begins at 6:00.Matthew Wilson-Birks, Advisor, The Nelson Self-Advocacy Group (Click here to find us on Facebook), Nelson CARES Society

The West Kootenays are also planning for the future of transit – check out their plan’s webpage!
