Joyce Fraser

Princeton, British Columbia

Every small community needs a Joyce Fraser with her caring and forward looking attitude. In the early 1970’s, aware of serious gaps in social services in the Princeton area, Joyce helped to create the Princeton & District Community Services Society, where she was administrator for close to thirty years. Joyce initiated programs to support seniors and marginalized citizens with adult day care, transit services, meals on wheels and home support. Of particular note is Joyce’s strong support for persons with developmental disabilities, which included the establishment of a Mini-Chef restaurant as a training centre. She also spearheaded one of the first assisted living complexes in BC. Now retired, Joyce continues to take an active role in community events and issues.
