Community Care Program


The Community Care Program brings individuals and families and their supporters together, to work through complicated life issues and make life better.


  • Building a support team of agencies and natural support who help you create a plan to achieve the goals that matter to you.


  • No blame, no shame.



  1. Who is this for? It is for those who are facing complex and difficult life situations. Often with the involvement of multiple agencies.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
