Nothing can be more important in our communities than the health and welfare of our children. They represent our future, and investing in them will result in positive health, social and economic outcomes for today and tomorrow.
The Hope & Area Transition Society is promoting the development of a safe and healthy society everyday through the services, advocacy and education programs they provide for individuals and families affected by social issues. Most recently, through funding from the Envision Financial Community Endowment, they have developed the Violence Prevention Program, a nine month in-school initiative aimed at breaking the cycle of violence in children’s lives.
Navigating the rocky road to adulthood is challenging for young girls at the best of times.
Girls Empowerment Group, a newly-launched program at the Ann Davis Transition Society in Chilliwack, brings girls aged 12-17 years together for eight-week sessions to build life skills and develop behavioural and emotional supports. The Envision Financial Community Endowment grant will provide funding for four groups of 12 girls each who will benefit from facilitated instruction and recreation and crafts to learn about communications, healthy relationships, abuse awareness, understanding emotions and leadership to enhance the girls’ self-image.
