Community Outreach Program
We are happy to continue our work in our very unique Community Outreach Program (COP). This is where potential clients who do not have private or work insurance to help cover the cost of essential mental health have the unique opportunity to receive free and pay what you can services.
COP New Client Openings! Address your mental health with free or pay-what-you-can sessions
Unwavering Hope continues offering this unique free program. With the support from Carleton University Master of Social Work Program, Sir Wilfred Laurier Master of Social Work Program and Yorkville University Graduate Degree in Counselling Psychology Program, through sharing their graduate students; we continue accepting new clients on an ongoing basis. The spaces being offered are available on a significantly lowered sliding scale as part of our ‘Community Outreach Program’ here at our practice. Openings will be filled on a first come first serve basis with a risk assessment in place as needed and open to Ontario residents.
