Freedom Outreach Adult and Teen Challenge held a public meeting last night to outline plans for a Community Outreach Office on Main Street in Flin Flon. The group’s Al Lagore says it will be a first point of contact for people and families who are struggling with addictions connecting them with services available in the community….
“For those struggling with addictions we’re going to be providing contacts to programs that they can go to and we can actually do the application right at the Centre to help people to go through those programs both short term and long term programs. For those families to be able to help them with knowing how to cope with those that are struggling with addictions within their families so there’ll be small group meetings where they can come and there’ll be small group meetings for those who are struggling as well themselves.”
Lagore added they hope to have the office running by the end of the year and will be doing a lot of fund raising and accepting donations with tax receipts available. It will also be a great place to volunteer with training available.
