Are you concerned with what you see on our streets? Safe Harbour is now offering an opportunity to talk about your concerns. The Turning Tides on Social Disorder and Street Concerns workshop navigates through the murky waters of myths and misconceptions surrounding addiction, mental health, and homelessness. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss concerns and get information, resources, and techniques about how to respond to individuals experiencing homelessness and addictions while keeping their businesses, customers, and staff safe.
This workshop is tailored for business owners, organizations in Central Alberta, and interested community members. Safe Harbour’s New Connection Catalyst, Casey Ames, a Registered Nurse, will deliver the workshop. With a diverse background in palliative care, surgical nursing, long-term care, Safe Harbour Detox, Emergency nursing, and the Virtual Opioid Dependency Program (VODP), Casey’s goal is to open communication and build connections within our community.
“At Safe Harbour we’re all about building understanding and keeping the lines of communication wide open. This is why, we are excited to bring the Turning Tides on Social Disorder and Street Concerns workshop to our community. This workshop will help businesses, organizations, and community members gain new insights and skills as we work together to create a safer and more connected community.” Kath Hoffman, Executive Director at Safe Harbour says.
