OCS Annual Outcomes Report 2014-2015
• Workshops were provided at the local high schools on relationship abuse and the law. Staff worked with a financial advisor to work on budget, credit and debt issues that clients are facing. • Staff facilitated workshops at local high schools on dating violence and abuse. The feedback was positive; lots of useful information, 180 students took part in the workshops. • Staff worked with family doctors to promote services; at the doctors’ request, in two cases staff met clients at the doctor’s office as the clients had not left the abusive relationship but needed a safe person to talk to. This also protected the clients from being overheard by their partners. • Staff reviewed our client risk assessment protocol and researched lethal and extremely dangerous behaviour. 3. Children and Youth for Domestic Peace (CYDP) The CYDP program provides group and individual counselling services for children who have witnessed abuse, threats, or violence in the home, and who are between the ages of 3 to 18 years of age. This year the program provided “Violence is Preventable” presentations for 479 students. This year the program operated with one staff for much of the year due to hiring a second counsellor who left within weeks for a better offer, and then re-hiring and training a second time. Despite this lag, numbers served are down only 20-24%.
