Holistic Transition Plan

A World Day of Prayer Grant allowed the Regina Transition House (SK) to develop a more holistic transitional plan for their clients. Staff created a four quadrant engagement tool that focused on 1. health and well-being, 2. financial and legal, 3. social, and 4. spiritual and cultural connections. This Medicine Wheel, as well as a Home Fires Assessment Tool for determining safe affordable housing, were launched in January 2019.
