Education Session: Community-based organizations play an important role in Newfoundland and Labrador’s health system, and have a significant impact on the lives of the individuals they serve. The mission of Stella’s Circle in St. John’s, NL, is to transform lives through real homes, real help, and real work. They provide services to adults who face many barriers to fully participating in their community, including mental health challenges, addictions, trauma, poverty, homelessness, criminal justice involvement, low literacy, and long periods of unemployment. Stella’s Circle has 125 dedicated staff who assist 1000 inspiring participants each year. The organization has won numerous awards, including the 2017 NL Employers’ Council Path to Distinction Award, the 2016 Canada Volunteers Award for Social Innovation, and the 2016 Torch Award for Ethics from the Better Business Bureau-Atlantic Region.
This one-hour education session/webinar will feature Lisa Browne, CEO of Stella’s Circle, who will talk about her work, both the programs and services that her organization delivers, and how they influence public policy directions.
