Welcome to the John Howard Society of the Thompson Region

We assist people impacted by criminal justice so that they can move forward in their lives, contributed to society and be part of making our communities safe for everyone.

We also offer support and housing to individuals with cognitive disabilities who are at risk of homelessness or involvement in the criminal justice system, and who may have concurrent issues of mental health or addictions.

We are a registered not for profit charity in Kamloops providing assistance with housing, life-skills, and community-based support with the goal of getting individuals to achieve greater independence and value their positive contributions to society. We advocate for just and humane punishment for crime and educate on the social, economic and personal costs of crime.
