Help Keep Our Community Healthy!

Hi friends,

There’s a lot of news around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and while most folks with common coronavirus recover on their own, those with underlying medical conditions are at risk. So while you or your family members may not be at too much risk, other people are still at risk.

It is with great care and consideration that we are suspending all Reflection Cafes and in-person experiences. Kudoz is going online with lots of amazing experiences being hosted live via zoom and online so you can do it at your own pace! 

Check out the online experiences at: www.app.kudoz.ca

Our mission

Kudoz exists to grow people’s sense of self, community and future.

We’re tackling the poverty of expectations and opportunities that limit people’s agency and aspirations — especially people with developmental disabilities who face a history of marginalization and exclusion. We do that by bringing people with and without disabilities together for shared experiences. Our goal is to reduce stigma and increase the conditions for positive mental health, meaningful employment, and greater independence.

Kudoers like Andrew go on experiences and grow tech, transit, and social skills through coaching. volume_up
Hosts like Carla volunteer one hour a month to share what they are passionate about. volume_up
Circle are family and staff like Katelyn who support Kudoers on their journey. volume_up
Businesses like the Vancouver Convention Centre are growing inclusive company cultures! volume_up
Cities like New Westminster are bringing 100s of splendid experiences to new Hosts and Kudoers. volume_up
