Envision Counselling seen many challenges in 2018 that they had to overcome. The biggest challenge they faced was their Estevan office flooding from the water sprinkler system, putting their office out of commission. They didn't let that stop them from helping their clients as they moved to the vacant office space next door to continue to provide support to their clients as their office was renovated. They were finally able to return to their newly renovated office in September and are happy with the new look as it feels cozy and homely.
"Our programming continues to be maximized within our community," said Christa Daku, Executive Director of Envision Counselling. "We continue to seek sponsorship throughout the RMs and the Cities as well as individual donors because we have been under-funding for several years. We did receive a small increase from the Ministry of Social Services this year but, it didn't meet the needs of the organization and the people that we serve."
Envision also received a few grants and donations throughout the year that help improve their programs to further help the community. They also opened a Needs Assessment Survey to further help the communities as well as improve the programs based on the results. The survey is open to all residents in the southeast until the end of February. Envision Counselling is looking forward to another year of helping the community.
