Ehrlo Counselling Services (ECS) has once again received $50,000 from the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation’s Anonymous Donor’s Fund.

“Because of this funding support we have been able to provide services to those most in need in our community,” Natashia Schoenroth, director of Ehrlo Counselling Services.

The funds will be used for pro-bono counselling for high risk, vulnerable individuals who have the least access but the most need for counselling and supports. The grant will fund up to 400 counselling sessions for 80 to 100 individuals and families. This is the ninth year the fund has supported pro-bono counselling at ECS.

“We see a continued and important need to serve those high-risk vulnerable persons, this includes low-income families, single-parent homes, persons with cognitive or developmental disabilities, and those with comorbid diagnosis.  Through these funding dollars, with the burden of cost gone, these persons and families have been able to focus on getting the support needed to assist them through the difficulties they are faced with,” Natasha added.
