About the Friends

The Friends are a group of people who came together to help keep the doors of the
Cranbrook Women’s Resource Centre (CWRC) open by securing sustainable funds.
We are volunteers. We host events, apply for grants and run campaigns.
Anyone can be a Friend. We hope you will be.

We are a standing committee of the Community Connections Society of SE BC.
