The program is focused on creating services that are inclusive and accessible for newcomers to this region. In 2008, Heritage Canada funding was finished and our outreach capacity went from 5 days per week to one day per week. This allowed us very little capacity for community outreach which is obligatory to engage the diverse community in counselling services.
However, in 2009, a grant to offer Money and Making it On Your Own groups allowed for increased outreach activities.
The next stage of the project proposes to continue to share this experience and expertise with other sectors, such as the for-profit, educational, health, faith communities, arts and culture, local governments etc. The goal is for more staff to become involved to imbed this philosophy of outreach into the essence of K-W Counselling activities.
