The Sunshine Coast Healthcare Auxiliary Granting Program provides grants to organizations for initiatives that promote healthy outcomes for Sunshine Coast residents.
Organizations are invited to apply each year by the end of February, but the process has been delayed this year due to Covid-19. We are now pleased to announce that eight grants have been awarded for 2020.
The Arrowhead Clubhouse Society serving adults with mental health challenges. Funds will help provide laundry facilities, bathrooms with showers, advocacy and crisis intervention.
The Pender Harbour Health Centre for a portable 3D ultrasound Bladder Scan. The impact of this will benefit both Pender Harbour and Sechelt as referrals to the hospital from Pender Harbour will be reduced.
Good Samaritan Canada / Christensen Village to support the Raising the Curtain research project on dementia.
The Vancouver Coastal Health Adaptive Fitness Program, sponsored by Home Care Services for individuals with developmental disabilities and brain injuries.
The Sunshine Coast Hospice Society in support of education, in-service training and clinical counselling services for those experiencing complicated bereavement.
Three grants were awarded to Sunshine Coast Community Services Society for their Parent and Tot Drop In, Dad’s Matter and Bellies and Babes programs, all supporting young families on the coast.
