How we've helped
I am a member of the IMPACT group as the work we do is both interesting to me on a personal and professional level. I like the community connections, collaborations and IMPACT we make within our town and surrounding areas.
I am a part of IMPACT because I believe it makes a positive difference in our community. IMPACT collaborates with businesses and other local organizations to provide community members with health and wellness awareness, mental health prevention, information on support groups, and events. IMPACT is a valuable part of our community.
I am part of the IMPACT committee as I believe there is incredible value in collaboration and teamwork. We've been able to identify the areas we can offer educational opportunities, awareness events and community programs, and hope we can continue to offer and enhance these opportunities in the future!
I represent the Walking Through Grief Society for the area, supporting those who are experiencing loss and grief. IMPACT keeps me informed and is of great value to the community as the different agencies come together for the common good to see areas of growth needed and offer services to improve the mental health of citizens.
