HELP is on the way.

The Sooke Region Volunteer Centre has again published its “Where to find help in the Sooke Region” brochure for Sooke and surrounding area.

The HELP brochure is a guide to residents offering contact information on more than 43 different organizations.

These organizations and their support range from community meals, pre-natal outreach, addictions support, counselling, chronic pain support, hospice and widows groups, veterans assistance, seniors outreach, RCMP Victim Services, and youth support programs.

“We find this an invaluable guide for accessing community services, and we have a strong measure of pride when looking at this brochure and seeing all of the support offered in our community,” said Dawn Humphreys, volunteer centre coordinator.

“It is also to be noted that all volunteers should be commended for working in these agencies to create and maintain a healthier community.”

Brochures have been distributed throughout the business community as well as the RCMP detachment, library, West Coast Medical Family Clinic, schools and at the Sooke Region Volunteer Centre located in the Sooke Child, Youth & Family Centre, 6672 Wadams Way.

The brochure can also be found online at sookeregionresources.com.

For more information and to have the HELP brochure dropped off at your business, please call 250-642-6364 ext.235.

The brochure is produced with funding from the Island Health Authority’s Sooke Integral Health Network and the District of Sooke.
