Carol Camille is the Executive Director of the Lillooet Friendship Centre Society (LFCS), serving her community for the past 13 years. She has organized and led the LFSC team with courage and energy to support hundreds of clients and members. Carol has been at the helm through significant challenges: the pandemic, economic hardships, fires, floods, landslides, road closures, homelessness and more. Because of her strength and dedication, the LFCS stayed open through the pandemic providing much needed services to the community.
Carol also works with the food bank and local grocers to provide food for those in need. These food sharing services reach neighbouring communities including Bralorne, Fountain and Goldbridge. When nearby Lytton was ravaged by wildfires in 2021, the LFCS was transformed into a dormitory with meals, medical attention and counselling offered to evacuees. As a proud Secwepemc woman from Tk’emlups, Carol ensures traditions and culture are actively featured and promoted in every way at LFCS.
