“Open Doors to the Community”
The South Cariboo Elizabeth Fry Society (SCEFS) began in 1982 as a branch of the Kamloops Elizabeth Fry Society with weekly visits from a Kamloops Elizabeth Fry worker coming to Ashcroft and then by 1984 became an independent agency.
SCEFS operates in a rural area in the Southern Interior of British Columbia with Ashcroft, BC being the main office providing services to individuals and families living over a 22,500 square kilometer area. This area includes five small communities (Ashcroft, Cache Creek, Clinton, Spences Bridge and Walhachin) and several First Nations Bands.
We are a non-profit community-based agency that provide services that support, educate and encourage individuals to empower themselves to make positive choices for themselves and their families.
