Campbell River’s One Stop Drop-In has moved to a new ground floor location at the Radiant Life Church, and is reaching out the to the community for help to spread the word about this monthly service, to street – involved folks.

“We’re thrilled with the new location,” said Leanne Cunningham on behalf of the Streetreach Committee. “We’re now on the ground floor, which makes it easier for people to access the supports we offer once a month.”

The One Stop Drop-In is a safe, accessible space that offers confidential and non-judgmental services, including a hot meal, primary health care, advocacy, financial and housing support, mental health and addiction, harm reduction education and foot care.

“We’re  reaching out to the community to help us get the word out so that the people who need these services can find us,” said Cunningham.

Donations of new or gently used outdoor survival wear (socks, footwear) or volunteers who can provide foot care, massage or hairstyling would be appreciated. Service providers may include; VIHA Public Health, AIDS Vancouver Island, North Island Liver Services, Mental Health and Addictions, Jade Society and Discovery Community College – CSW Students. The One Stop Drop-In is held on the second Tuesday of each month at the Radiant Life Church at 1251 Cypress Street, between 12-3 p.m. For more information, contact: AIDS Vancouver Island – 250-830-0787 or email at: leanne.cunningham@avi.org
