Each year there are new requests for the replacement of equipment used in caring for our clients. We want our staff to have access to the best possible equipment to do that.

This year’s capital equipment list includes:
- Bladder Scanners
- Hi Lo Beds
- Portable Vital Sign Machines
- Ceiling Lifts
- Bariatric Shower Commode
- Digital Wheelchair Ramp Scale
- Portable Hoyer Lift
- Alenti Hygiene Lift
Lodge on Dawson
The Lodge on Dawson provides an opportunity for people struggling with chronic homelessness, as well as mental health and substance use challenges, to find a safe and supported environment. Transitional housing fulfils an unmet need in our community for people who want to make a positive change in their lives but first need to get their feet underneath them by having their basic needs met including a safe place to live, healthy foods and professional supports.
With a stable environment as a starting point, clients can move forward in setting long-term goals and address mental health and/or other addiction issues.
