2013 was a year Albertans will not forget. It was a year that tested many of us, our resilience and our commitment to each other as a community. Many faced loss, uncertainty, despair, and many leaned on each other and in true Albertan style began to help. The floods showcased Mother Nature at her worst, but humanity at its best.
Albertans didn't just help clean up and rebuild houses; we all helped rebuild courage, hope and optimism. It was a year where many lost so much, but a year where our community came together like never before.
As a member of our community for over 50 years, Calgary Counselling Centre was there while the waters rose and have continued to provide support for the mental health needs of individuals and families. This spirit of care shown in our community in 2013 is a value that our Centre was founded on more than 50 years ago and is a value that guides us today.
We recognize the immense strength that is required by some to seek out counselling. We commend the hard work and dedication our clients put into their counselling journey. Our staff strives to stay true to our mission of providing compassionate counselling to anyone in need. It is their deep dedication to our clients that make us a leader in our industry.
Through the courage of our clients and the outstanding care from our staff we are able to continue to impact our community every day. Here, we will take you through 2013 highlighting the courage, care and community we witnessed during this year.
