CLIMBING FOR FUN. CLIMBING FOR HEALTH. CLIMBING FOR A CAUSE. #whyIclimb 2019!

 

Family Services Windsor-Essex staff climbed over 1,000 steps at the WFCU Centre, joining the United Way’s iclimb2019 for an exciting challenge filled with fun activities that promoted on healthy, active living. Staff at FSWE LOVE to give back to our local United Way!

Each year, FSWE staff helps raise funds and awareness to support Mental Health and Counselling Programs in our local community. Last year alone, FSWE provided 10,221 counselling sessions across Windsor & Essex County, thanks in great part to support from our local United Way and our generous local donors!

Community support for these initiatives has helped to virtually eliminate a 12-week community wait time for local counselling services through the creation of walk-in clinics and group counselling programs that help people throughout Windsor and Essex County. In fact, 20 times more people are getting the support they need when they need it through programs like FSWE’s Walk-in and Group Counselling Services.  These programs help support and prevent people from falling back into crisis by providing a wider network of support.

Thanks to everyone who took part in and supported this fun event.
