We can help to create a better system
Umbrella advocates at the service delivery level to ensure that programs are welcoming and meaningful to those who seek help. We liaise with many different community organizations to promote understanding and collaboration.
We also meet frequently with managers, policy makers, and funders to examine ways to integrate and improve services, and to encourage the development of additional resources. We can easily make a good social argument to provide more help to those affected, and yet change is slow to come. We’re just now starting to make an economic case; one based on the clear reduction in police and ambulance calls, hospital admissions, children in care, poverty and homelessness that would result from a continuum of improved addiction treatment opportunities.
Join us as we strive to create a community of mutual respect, where services are meaningful and everyone feels valued and welcome.
