Every woman living at Brenda Strafford Centre is assigned an Adult Counsellor that they meet with on a weekly basis. Counsellors are here to help clients settle into the building and also provide support to help residents with emotional support and assist in matters such as securing financial support, budgeting, rental payment, and applying for educational programs or employment. Scheduled counselling sessions lasting up to an hour-and-a-half in length are offered once a week, with drop-in counselling available on an as-needed basis.
