On December 19th, The MRCSSI welcomed local MPPs Peggy Sattler and Teresa Armstrong who brought a very special guest with them to visit the Centre who was eager learn about our programs and the impact that our services have on the community. We were pleased to have Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath stop by our office for a brief meeting and presentation as part of her visit to London on Thursday.
MRCSSI’s Executive Director Dr. Mohammed Baobaid led a discussion on how the Centre’s culturally integrative approach works to identify specific needs in immigrant families and bridge the gaps between these families and mainstream service providers. Also discussed was MRCSSI’s success in a preventative approach which intervenes to neutralize family violence before the point of escalation and how we are establishing our collaborative model through the Shared Journeys project across Ontario.
Below are some pictures from the visit.
