The Counselling Initiative:
As you know, 2020 has been rough for many people, to address this, we have partnered with some Adventist counsellors to provide 50% off of therapy fees for the first three visits. This initiative is for women in our churches & communities that struggle financially to get the mental health support they need or don’t have insurance coverage for professional counselling. To access the listing, please email Ruth @ rweidner@AdventistOntario.org.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This weekend will also include an online Quick Connections initiative on Saturday evening – a safe place to meet new friends and grow your network.
