Dragonfly Counselling and Support Centre (“The Centre”)
Proudly providing sexual assault services to North East Alberta
We are a newly formed non-profit charity organization incorporated under the Alberta Societies Act, and under the direction of a community-based Board of Directors. The Centre is a proud member agency of the Association of Sexual Assault Services (AASAS), which provides coordinator and supports for its’ member agencies across Alberta (www.aasas.ca).
Dragonfly Counselling and Support Centre (The Centre) began providing specialized sexual assault counselling in April 2012, as part of a two-year pilot project. Services have grown and expanded, with the home office being established in Bonnyville. The Lloydminster Sexual Assault and Information Centre acted as a guide and fiscal agent during this inaugural period.
The Centre has been operating independently as of January 1, 2015.
What We Do
Networking and interagency collaboration are encouraged and initiated. We provide leadership in the area of sexual assault and collaborate with community partners and allied human service organizations in order to effect appropriate and timely support services.
Men, women and children are all attended to by our counselling team.
Crisis intervention, support and counselling services are offered in several communities. Staff travel to meet with survivors of sexual assault by appointment. Our counselling team also provides distance counselling services via teleconference and web-based technologies.
SUPPORT THE CENTRE
The success and the future of this program depends largely on community support from across the North East region.
We are grateful to our funders and all businesses and individuals who have supported our program. Every thought counts and makes a tremendous difference in the lives of survivors.
Donations are welcomed and appreciated.
