  • Assistance with medical appointments and planning.
  • Support to plan meals and buy food/other necessities.
  • Assistance with budgeting, personal banking, and other financial issues.
  • Support with BC Housing and/or landlord and building requirements.

What we do

Our responsibility is to be responsive, empathic and accountable. We recognize each individual may need more support at different times in their lives, so frequency and duration is sometimes determined by an immediate need. For example, the person may be facing homelessness, a medical emergency or a mental health issue that may require more support and/or advocacy.
