COVID-19: Changes to services at ANKORS
ANKORS is following the advice of BC’s Ministry of Health by limiting in-person contact and meeting in groups during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to protect the most vulnerable amoung us. Many of our programs are operating in altered formats appropriate to their status as necessary community services. Some services are operating online, over the phone, or in a social distancing service model. We are still providing the large majority of our services and programming in some format. Please be in touch if you’d like more information on how ANKORS services are functioning at this time. For reliable and up-to-date information on COVID-19 symptoms and recommendations, visit the BC Centre for Disease Control website.

Harm Reduction and
Overdose Prevention

assessment of the
interior region

  • Naloxone training is effective
  • Access to harm reduction supplies is not reaching everyone
  • Collaboration is making a difference
  • Emotional support often isn’t available after an overdose
  • Many people are engaged in poly-substance use
  • Non-judgemental, personal services make people feel more welcome
  • Peers want to be an even bigger part of the solution

We need your support

ANKORS programs run on community. Whether you choose to donate your time or money, everything counts.

When you donate to the ANKORS Foundation Fund, 100% of your gift goes directly to people in the Kootenay / Boundary Regions living with HIV/AIDS and/or Hep C. Your donation will support someone accessing important medical treatments, travelling to see a BBI specialist, or otherwise access very needed care.
