Ride Don’t Hide raises awareness and funds that make a significant impact in our community. Your donation enables us to continue this essential work in several programs and services:
Losing a loved one can be one of the most traumatic experiences of our lifetime. Our renowned Bereavement Program helps adults and children cope with loss by providing supportive grief counselling, as well as education and consultation to community agencies, groups and the general public. Additionally, support groups offer peer support and education to help understand the grieving process and teach healthy coping strategies. The program relies on community support for sustainability.
Our Client Assistance Fund provides short-term financial support to CMHA-WECB clients in need. Up to $250 per client/year is available to use on basic necessities like food vouchers, bus tickets, cab fare, etc. The program is fully funded through community donations.
Our Sole Focus Project seeks to generate greater awareness, address stigma and raise funds to ensure that mental health education and training are available to workplaces, schools and community agencies. We encourage the Windsor-Essex community to take a stand for mental health through this campaign. Visit www.solefocusproject.ca to find out more. #showyoursole
