What does our support worker do?
Our support worker is here to help you navigate services within our community and help you create a wellness plan for yourself as you work through the challenges in your life.
Sessions are scheduled during business hours throughout the week and are currently being offered by phone, zoom and in person. You can book an appointment to talk to our Women's Support Worker by calling the centre.
What you can expect after you book your appointment?
The Women's Support Worker will call you at your scheduled appointment to discuss your needs. During the first session, she will walk you through a simple intake process and ask you a few questions. You and her will discuss other community resources and supports, set short and long term goals, work through challenges and make a plan that meets your individual needs.
All of our support sessions are free of charge.
