An inside look at both sides of Kelowna's non-profit sector

From Kelowna's not-for-profit sector, Ester Pike of Kelowna Women's Shelter shares an enriching and powerfully personal story of how a non-profit saved her in a moment of crisis when her family became homeless after a natural disaster.

Through guidance, perseverance, and a passion for volunteering, Ester learned compassion, life skills and a Master's Degree that put her on an admirable path towards serving others and supporting the community that took care of her when she faced unexpected adversity and challenges.

We ask that you listen to Ester's story and hope that you share the same sense of appreciation as our host Nikki Csek does throughout this empowering episode of Cseking In.

'Cseking In' is a series that tells the story of how local leaders got to where they are today.

Guided by Nikki Csek, an exceptionally experienced and compassionate host, her fascination and inquisitive nature guides us through a story that uncovers why and how people grow, persevere and ultimately, achieve success.
