The second day of finding the bridge between gaps in the health care system for those less unfortunate continues today in Williams Lake.
Shawna LeBlanc, with the Carrier Chilcotin Tribal Council, says this is their first year of collaborating with the Salvation Army to offer the Metis and First Nation Health Service Needs Project.
“Just knowing what the gaps and barriers already are within the community it was time to get together with lots of other support groups and organizations in the area itself, and try and provide to the people what they are already lacking today.”
LeBlanc says feedback so far has mostly been positive with 89 individuals filling out a survey yesterday.
The free open house, which features informational health booths and a spiritual healer wraps up at the Williams Lake Salvation Army around 4.
