To provide crisis support and counselling to women living in abusive situations in the community, and to those who have left abusive situations and are still experiencing crisis due to the effects of their abuse.
DESCRIPTION OF THE OUTREACH COUNSELLING & SUPPORT PROGRAM
The Outreach Support Workers (OSW) provide both one-to-one and group counseling to women who are living in the community, who are experiencing abuse-related crises or coping with the after effects of abuse.
As well, the OSW can help clients develop appropriate safety plans and identify their options and available resources. They can also facilitate their admission to the shelter if the woman chooses that option.
