The colder weather is upon us, and Stepping Stones Emergency Shelter is full! Staff try to provide people who have to sleep outside with items to help keep them warm and dry.

Thank you from Emily’s Leadership Group


Debating in Castlegar

We had 6 middle school kids debate in Castlegar last weekend.  They did really well!  The best part was seeing them connect with kids from schools in SD20 once the debating part of the day was done.  Even though competition is quite fierce, they completely understand and appreciate that it is all in good fun.  Mark your calendars as we will host a Regional debate tournament at LVR on Jan 14thRead more →


Be Prepared for Cold Winter Travel


A student from the Social Services Worker Program, Selkirk College, Castlegar, BC, stopped by recently in an effort to make everyone more aware of the dangers of travelling in the cold weather. He had personal experience when a loved one’s trip to the store almost turned deadly. Be safe out there, everyone!

A short, quick trip to the store, you wouldn’t think required much planning.  A sudden snow storm, foggy, cold weather, icy roads.  It only takes a second for something to go wrong.  Please be prepared for cold weather travel.  It may save your life or the lives of your loved ones.  Read more →
