Okanagan College Students’ Social Enterprise To Benefit Local Homeless Men
A new social enterprise developed by students from Okanagan College’s Enactus team is kicking off this month and will benefit local residents of Chandler House in Kelowna.
Chandler House is Inn from the Cold’s newest residence and is home to eight chronically homeless men in Kelowna. The residence is a safe place for the men to rest, take a shower, and have a hot meal. In short, it’s a place for them to call home.
After receiving a large donation of soaps, Inn from the Cold connected with the College’s Enactus team and a unique opportunity emerged - a chance to generate income for the not-for-profit, while giving students a chance to put their business skills to the test by developing a plan for a legitimate social enterprise.
