The mission of the Counselling program is to prevent personal and family breakdown, to enhance the abilities of individuals and families to constructively manage their lives and to enrich the quality of family life.
Fees for counselling programs are based on a sliding scale. No-one is refused services due to financial reasons. Self-referrals are welcome. Appropriate referrals to other agencies may be made.
Drop-In Counselling allows people to receive immediate assistance. An intake is required.
We will offer Drop-In Services on a weekly basis on Thursdays from 2:30 pm – 7:00 pm and every Friday afternoon from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
Drop-In counselling service is on a self referral and referrals from community partners, on a first come, first served basis.
Consent for minors may be required.
