Halton ADAPTHealth & Wellness
Fundraising goal: $20,000
For many individuals living locally to the Churchill Neighbourhood Centre, the ADAPT Nurse Practitioner and Counsellor can offer immediate primary health care and counselling, and provide an important connection to ongoing health services at community partners. ADAPT knows that accessing health and social supports is the key to individuals managing their wellbeing and preventing further illness.
Unfortunately, there are many barriers that a community member can face that stand in the way of that access. Barriers like choosing between enough food or maintaining housing versus travelling to see a doctor or paying for medication. Many have experienced a history of stigma and prejudice from standard health care providers.
