Our nurse practitioners and outreach workers work with other agencies to support people who may find it hard to access health programs and services. We visit a variety of agencies in our community and connect clients to community resources as needed, including our health centre. Some agencies are visited several times a week and others are visited as needed.
Participating agencies include:
- Welcome In Drop In Centre - a centre that provides meals and support to vulnerable people.
- Wyndham House - a residence for homeless young men and women.
- Michael House - a residence for young pregnant women who lack support.
- Give Yourself Credit - a program for teenagers who are working toward completing their high school education.
Our nurse practitioners, doctors and nurses work with people who are registered with Stonehenge Therapeutic Community and don't have a primary health care provider. We address the medical concerns that prevent these individuals from fully participating in the addiction and substance abuse programs offered at Stonehenge.
We also offer popular monthly presentations to community groups including new immigrants, ethnic groups and young parents. These educational presentations cover a broad range of topics and often include information about women's reproductive health, birth control and sexuality.
Cultural interpretation services are available on request.
