Because FASD has been so misunderstood for so long, many adults have struggled with its long-term effects without treatment. We believe that doesn’t need to be the case.
We offer a huge range of programs aimed at helping adults with FASD become the person they have the potential to be by empowering, educating and preventing. Our support workers aim to identify valuable services available within a client’s community and make the necessary referrals to the help they need, allowing our clients to become their own advocates. This process typically takes twelve months, with follow-up meetings as needed.
We don’t know how much drinking will hurt an unborn baby, but it’s safest to not have anything at all to drink if you are going to have a baby or if you are planning to have a baby.
Moving into adulthood—better known now as #adulting—can be especially taxing for people with FASD,so we're there to help with making the transition a little easier.
The Employment Program is designed for persons aged sixteen and older, who have been diagnosed with FASD, to enhance their quality of life, pursue appropriate employment goals, increase self-reliance and community participation.
The Mothers-to-be Mentorship Program is a free, non-judgemental, 100% voluntary, one-on-one support program that assists women to have and raise healthy babies. We know that the women who come to the program are dealing with various situations, so that women will never be asked to leave the program due to a setback or relapse.
The program is for women who are pregnant, are planning to become pregnant or who have recently given birth and are dealing with alcohol and/or drug use and want to make a real, positive change for their future.
Mentors have the flexibility to do whatever it takes to help the people in their care. This can involve finding alcohol and drug treatment, connecting mothers to community resources and stabilizing their lives by connecting to community resources that can provide clothing, shelter and healthcare.Let us Help you
