Our programs and services respect different cultures, traditions and beliefs and we encourage individual independence and self determination. In 2019-2020 our Resource Centre recorded a record number of people visiting our space for one of our many progras and services. There were 35 different programs, we had 4557 in person visits; 2574 phone calls, and 1062 unduplicated individuals. In March/April 2020, COVID 19 was upon us and our phone and emails did not slow down. In the first couple of weeks we had 75 individuals who reached out to us for more information and feeling stressed about the changing world.
We are slowly moving a number of programs and services online for fall 2020.
