MILITARY FAMILY RESOURCE CENTRE
In an effort to engage with veterans, families, service providers and stakeholders in Haileybury, Timmins, Sudbury, Richards Landing, Bruce Mines and Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., a group of organizations that serve veterans and their families in northeastern Ontario are planning a series of outreach events including town hall meetings, open houses, community tours, workshops for service providers, and presentations on a variety of topics relevant to the veteran and family community.
They will also be available for individual drop-in meetings as requested. Representatives from the Military Family Resource Centre’s Veteran Family Program, Veterans Affairs Canada, Operational Stress Injury Social Support Peer program and the Legion Service Bureau have joined forces to bring a “one-stop-shop” to communities that may face certain barriers to accessing services in the North Bay offices.
The group will be launching their outreach activities in Haileybury on Feb. 4, 2020.
They will be in Timmins from Feb. 5-7, 2020 and in Sudbury from Feb. 18-20, 2020.
They will be in Richards Landing and Sault Ste. Marie on March 4, 2020, and are concluding their outreach trip in Bruce Mines on March 5, 2020.
A full schedule of events in each community can be found on our website.
“We are very excited to meet members of these communities, including other community service providers who are supporting veterans and their families in Northern communities,” said Lennea McKee, Veteran Family Program coordinator.
“We hope that by working together and building a strong network there will be increased accessibility to both community support, and specialized services, for veterans and their families in the north,” reported Carrie Gray, Veteran Family Program coordinator.
