Adaptive Equipment loan cupboard (PIM has numerous adaptive recreation equipment that is on loan free of charge to our members that allow people with disabilities to take self directed hikes, biking and access to the many beaches in the Okanagan) Many members utilize the adaptive loans cupboard to take adaptive recreational equipment with them while vacationing as well.
Individuals and families of people with a disability can feel isolated from their communities, feeling neglected and forgotten. Seeking assistance within the community, people with disabilities often encounter a confusing myriad of programs and services. People in Motion helps to chart a path by providing these specific services to its members and works to partner with other organizations in the community.
People in Motion is a local Kelowna based society and as such 100% of funds raised by People in Motion stay in this community to serve local citizens and guests with our programs and services.
