Age To Age Training, Education and Counselling Inc., - Counselling Service

 

We are a registered and incorporated non-profit organization with Reg No:#838723336RC0001. We have been supporting clients in the community with a variety of issues. Targeted areas of support include mental health, domestic related issues, substance abuse and addictions, child and adolescence issues and housing.

As above...

After our research, and speaking with several community partners including family doctors and psychiatrists, it became evident that the need for one-on-one support to avoid unnecessary visits to hospitals and 911 phone calls is becoming more and more imminent. We have found that some clients are discharged from the hospital and return because they are not connected to ongoing support.

Our goal is to create the support needed to avoid reoccurring visits to the hospitals, walk-in clinics, rehab centers and unnecessary police calls/visits.

We have a No Waitlist policy. Our service can help save time, money and headaches!
