The KCRD includes the following helpful information about listed organizations: name, address, telephone, fax, email, website, contacts, hours of operation, a description of programs, volunteer opportunities, sources of funding, comments, and categories.
 
Finding a Group

It's possible to find a particular group in three ways: Category, Location and Search.

Category or Location

Select 'Resource Directory' from the left-hand menu. Select 'Category' or 'Location' from the right-hand pane. The figures in brackets (#) indicate the number of organizations included within this item. Select a category or location to show the organization's name and description.

To call up details about a particular group select 'Details about <group name>'.
If no groups are listed within a category the message 'No Groups Listed' will show.

The KCRD categories have been reorganized to better represent the spectrum of community services. Please click here for a complete list.

Search the Directory

Type in a word or combination of words (a query) to the 'Find:' textbox and hit 'Search'. Searches are case-insensitive.

All search queries are treated as an exact phrase search, meaning that if you intend to search for 'Nelson Public Library' those words must appear in the KCRD in that exact order. Use the AND, OR, NOT functions listed below to help direct your search.

Search Help

AND
If you wish to search for words located anywhere within the KCRD in no particular order you can use the AND operator. For example, to search for 'Nelson Public Library' with all of the words existing in the name or description in any order, you would enter: Nelson and Public and Library.

OR
A search using OR between terms will match either one of the terms. For example, to search for a museum with either a Nelson or mining focus you would enter: museum and Nelson or mining.

NOT
To exclude terms from your search, use NOT. To search for all listings about religion that do not contain the word 'Christianity', for example, you would enter: religion not Christianity.
