Dear LaSalle residence and community partners,
Despite the significant disruption of having to temporarily close several of our services, our priority remains the health, safety and wellness of our community.
Everyone is concerned and affected by the COVID-19 Coronavirus in so many different ways, during these difficult times within the scope of our resource capacity we have adjusted services to accommodate the most pressing demands of vulnerable individuals and families.
We are grateful for our staff that is mostly volunteers giving of themselves selflessly and will continue to ensure their safety through adherence to all Public health preventative safety measures.
The following services have been adjusted to facilitate remote support.
Tele- counselling to individuals, families and teenagers.
Crisis interventions, psychosocial assessments and referrals to other appropriate resources.
Tele/internet Homework support to complete academic work for Elementary and high school children.
Food acquisition and delivery to vulnerable individuals and families. ( Please take note that those who are already receiving baskets from another organization let us know to ensure that everyone, especially those with 3-4 children in more dire need can benefit). With the collective strength of our community partners, we aspire to continue making a difference in our community.
