To kick off Season 3, we go back to the beginning. How does someone typically find out about Rowan House and make the decision to come into the shelter or connect with an Outreach Support Worker? Well, in many cases, the answer may be with support and resource referral from Foothills Regional Victim Services. In this episode, long-time program manager, Kerri Wilkinson joins me to talk about the role they play in helping families begin their journey to hope and healing.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Orange Shirt Day
This is a day to remember those we’ve lost to suicide and raise awareness about how suicide can be prevented.
- identify a person thinking about suicide
- reach out and have a conversation
- connect them to help
- create a safety plan with them
- support them as they move forward
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day was launched June 15, 2006 by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations.
WEAAD is also in support of the United Nations International Plan of Action acknowledging the significance of elder abuse as a public health and human rights issue.
Since its inception, communities throughout the country and around the world used this day to raise the visibility of elder abuse, by sharing information about abuse and neglect and promoting the resources and services that increase seniors’ safety and well-being.

Project SOS: Share Our Stories is a writing opportunity for seniors to share their stories of resiliency and how they got through a difficult time in their lives.
The Town of Okotoks, in partnership with the communities of Black Diamond, Turner Valley, Foothills County, High River and Longview, will share new stories every Wednesday until May 31, 2021. Collected stories will be shared in 2021 on the Town of Okotoks’ website.
Foothills Regional Victim Services would like to encourage you to post your story to this wonderful project!
Visit: http://www.okotoks.ca/SOS to share your story and to read about challenges seniors in our communities have faced, and how they got through it – and maybe find inspiration on how to face your own challenges!
