Do you help 60’s Scoop survivors or know an organization who does?

PovNet has created a website to connect survivors and applicants with local organizations who may be able to help them through the application process, as the deadline approaches at the end of August.

What you can do

  1. Check this Organization List to see if your organization (or any others you know of) are listed: http://scoop.wordpress2.vcn.bc.ca/organization-list/
  2. To have your organization added, please fill in and submit this form: http://scoop.wordpress2.vcn.bc.ca/organization-addition-form/


The goal is to have organizations added by this Friday, August 2nd, in time to promote this website with the public on Tuesday, August 6th after the long weekend.

Please share as needed. Thank you!

Learn more about the 60’s Scoop Settlement at the Sixties Scoop Settlement website.
