The Community Care Program brings individuals and families and their supporters together, to work through complicated life issues and make life better.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
- Building a support team of agencies and natural support who help you create a plan to achieve the goals that matter to you.
WHAT IT’S NOT ABOUT
- Who is this for? It is for those who are facing complex and difficult life situations. Often with the involvement of multiple agencies.
- How will this help me?
Empowerment – you will make the decisions for your future.
Building relationships – you have the opportunity to connect your family, friends and professional supporters in a unique way.
Resources – tap into resources you may not know about.
Partnership – Someone to walk with you through this challenging period of time.
- How long does it take? This is not a quick-fix solution. The process can take anywhere from 4 months to as long as a year or more.
