Testimonials From Our Members


As a new ED to the area, the [Koop] provided me an immediate “in” to other agencies like mine, and all the supports available to make me and our agency successful. Without it, it would have been an uphill struggle that would have taken me so much longer.

I have been very thankful for the leadership development opportunities offered through the [Koop] . . . resources like this would not even be on my radar if it were not for [the Koop] making them accessible, and taking on the burden of the planning.


IT networking & resources are invaluable for small agencies with no in-house IT and limited resources to contract out. Finance & Payworks networking groups are also very helpful. Records Management project would not have happened . . . without the [Koop].


Kootenay Boundary Community Services Co-operative maintains memberships with a variety of regional and provincial organizations to remain aware of issues impacting the social services sector and to positively support member organizations.
