An excellent website resource created by Powell River Community Services Association and the Powell River & Region Transition House Society, compiling information and resources available in Powell River for families and persons in distress. There is a list of food programs in Powell River as well as housing and rental unit information too.
The PRCSA/PR&RTHS has a wide assortment of services to suit any member of a family in need. Please click on the service that you believe would be of most help to your situation. If you have children, perhaps visiting the Children Who Witness Abuse program site would be a way to start. If you require someone to talk to about an upcoming court appearance, Specialized Victim Support may be what you need. At any time you can call one of us and get more information.
We are under the same board and executive director but are two different societies. This means that unless you sign the right forms we cannott talk to each other about your case. This is your right, to keep things private. In some cases though, having a whole team working on your side can be like a support circle!
