It was a tough night for Estevan's Envision Counselling and Support Centre. 

"We received some news last night," explained Christa Duka, Executive Director, "that our Estevan office was flooding and indeed it was."

"We had people down here as soon as we could to assess the damage. We're still waiting for the adjustors to show up but at this time, the amount of damage is unknown. We've lost a few computers. A lot of our office equipment has been damaged due to the water."

"As we grow, this is a big hiccup for us."

Envision's office will be closed, likely for the rest of the week.

"Fortunately, we, as an organization, always have a contingency plan set up for things that may come up so that is what we are doing right now. We are fortunate enough, we will be moving next door to the Golder Associates space to be able to continue our continuity of services."

She adds that they haven't decided yet whether the plan will be to move back into the previous office space or find a new place to set up.

"We need about 10 offices to be able to offer all of our programming successfully."

"If anyone from the community wants to reach out and support us in the meantime, we definitely will accept that with open arms."
