Success Story: Working Diligently

December 9, 2018 Healing Heroes

“Equality” was a young mother fleeing domestic violence. While working with her family support worker, she identified three goal attainment paths: 1. Women’s safety 2. Housing/Accommodations 3. Community Supports & Social Networks. ‘Equality’ worked very diligently on keeping her and her children safe by meeting with the family support worker to develop a safety plan at her place of employment, at the college and in the community. She engaged in group sessions, utilized the trauma counselling, and our in-house gym to exercise along with booking our volunteer massage therapist and engaging with childcare staff to find childcare for her children. She has regained her confidence and is currently transitioning out of Serenity Place by attempting to secure subsidized housing in the community.

Thank you to the real life women behind “Equality”who share their stories.
