Eleven years ago, Daryle Roberts joined what is now the Living Positive Resource Centre Okanagan as its Executive Director. Under his leadership, the centre increased its effective delivery of services to those in the community living with or affected by HIV, AIDS, or Hepatitis C. Daryle initiated an AIDS walk which has grown ten-fold since 1997, raising significant funds and more importantly raising awareness. As well, Daryle has been participant in the community’s development of a Four Pillars program and a ten year plan to end homelessness. Daryle is honoured today for his contributions to improving the social fabric of the Central Okanagan.
