Who and What is the John Rudy Health Resource Centre Association?

The John Rudy Health Resource Association is an innovative non-profit registered charity in Vernon B.C.  Our mission is to improve the health and well being of all persons in the community by addressing health literacy needs.  We strive to empower people to take an active and informed role in their and their family's health - by supporting them to obtain, understand and utilize health services and information.
We want people to know that they are not alone in their health crisis or experiences of living with a chronic condition. There is real power in meeting with someone in person and we have seen the positive impact our services have on the lives of community members. 



Our Work

One-to-one in-person services are always free and include:
  • Assisting people to find, read and understand health information for themselves and their family members.
  • Supporting people in navigating the health care system and tributaries specific to their needs.
  • Helping people find the correct health forms and assisting with completion on paper or online.
Health Literacy Presentations- A pilot project that surpassed expectations. Brings useful tools to the community via short presentations.  Always free!  Presentations provide useful tips and strategies. For example, how to make the most of one's doctors appointments and a take-brochure that covers all of the information and can be shared with friends and family.

Our Impact

  • In 2019 we provided 192 hours of one-to-one support and served 164 individuals, 61 males and 103 females.
  • In 2019 82% of our expenses went to client programs, 13% went to fundraising and 5% to administration.
