The Salvation Army Homestead hosted an open house to celebrate a new contract with the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC).
With over fifty people were in attendance, guest speakers included Captain Jennifer Canning, the Executive Director of the Homestead; Cari Turi, Associate Area Director for Community Corrections Pacific Region; a Homestead Alumni and Major Susan L. van Duinen, Divisional Commander for TSA Divisional Headquarters.
Representatives from CSC were provided with a tour of the facility along with the chance to learn more about the programs and services Homestead provides to women over the age of 19 who have willingly entered into an 18 week addictions recovery program.
We look forward to a successful partnership with CSC in the years to come.
The Salvation Army Vancouver Homestead is a residential Support Recovery Program for women seeking recovery from substance abuse. Our aim is to create a safe and secure place for women to address the unique bio-psycho-social-spiritual needs they face in their recovery, therefore facilitating remarkable healing.
The Homestead’s programs are based on a community living environment, where we are supportive of one another’s journey. Healing occurs in the process of journeying together through recovery, as we learn about ourselves and how to cope with the feelings we have in everyday life.
