Each month, we select a non-profit organization to receive 50% of our Sunday morning collection plate. We call this "Outreach". During October, our Outreach recipient will be SHEWAY, a project of the Vancouver Native Health Society. SHEWAY provides comprehensive health and social services to women who are either pregnant or parenting children less than 18 months old and who are experiencing current or previous issues with substance use. The focus of the program is to help the women have healthy pregnancies and positive early parenting experiences. The program consists of prenatal, postnatal and infant health care, education and counseling for nutrition, child development, addictions, HIV and Hepatitis C, housing and parenting. SHEWAY also assists in fulfilling basic needs, such as providing daily nutritious lunches, food coupons, food bags, nutritional supplements, formula, and clothing.
