The mobile unit will deliver targeted community supports and outreach through partnerships with Ontario Health, Public Health Unit, Municipalities, Canadian Mental Health, Community Supports, Emergency Services, Primary care and others.
The Community Support Centre’s CEO, Tracey Bailey says: “This is a diamond that has come out of the challenges of the pandemic and it is right in our wheelhouse! Partnerships will allow us to hit the ground running and development of 12 pop up days for 2022 are already underway. We anticipate pop up food security; coat distribution; medical assessment and more This unit will work with high priority
populations.”
As our teams of community champions grow in Windsor-Essex so will the on-site outreach and promotions to available services and supports.

Looking forward, we are excited to work with other community partners in an effort to continue to deliver the right care at the right time and at the right place.
