The purpose of the Outreach Program is to provide follow up to clients who have accessed Residential services, and provide supports to individuals in the community that wish to be a part of the program. This program provides education, referrals, emotional support, transportation and advocacy to assist clients in creating goals that will help them get to a state of well-being within their lives. To refer yourself or a client, contact us directly and ask for the Outreach Intake worker during business hours (Monday – Friday 8:30 – 4:30 pm.). Outreach workers can deliver presentations to the community that focus on healthy relationships, family violence prevention and dating violence prevention.
The following are the goals of the Outreach program:
- To assist clients to identify what they need to enable them to live more productively and independently, and to set goals designed to meet those needs.
- To support individuals and families to live independently and productively, free from any form of abuse.
- To increase the community awareness of services that are available to families evidenced by an increase in number of referrals to the Outreach program.
- To coordinate with professional stakeholders on behalf of client families.
