New Denver Hospice Society trains and uses volunteers to sustain a quality of living for persons in the process of dying, and to support bereaved family and friends in their transition through grief.

The Slocan Valley Refugee Coalition is an inclusive community group of approximately twenty persons drawn from throughout the Slocan Valley. We are a Constituent Group applying to sponsor a refugee family, under the umbrella of Turner-Zion United Church and the United Church of Canada. While we ourselves are not a religious group, the United Church provides us with scaffolding and expertise in interfacing with the Canadian government for refugee sponsorship.
