Community Programs

The Community Programs Department was created to address isolation and marginalization of men, women and families living with HIV/AIDS.

The program promotes social integration, health and well being, which help in developing a sense of belonging and community among residents and within the larger community.

The staff team oversees the Wellness Centre at our Sherbourne site which provides a variety of services offered by professionals free of charge.  Alternative therapies are very popular with people living with HIV/AIDS and the team strive to provide a variety of opportunities for residents and clients in all programs.  Currently the following therapies are being offered on a regular basis:

  • Touch Therapy  
  • Polarity therapy
  • Naturopathy
  • Reflexology
  • Registered Massage Therapy
  • Accupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
  • Shiatsu Massage Therapy
