Maison de la famille Centre de pédiatrie sociale Vallée-de-la-Gatineau — Maniwaki, QC

Further to the introduction of a new pediatric service managed by a doctor and a social worker, Bell’s funding will support a project aimed at giving children with high anxiety symptoms access to sports, cultural and recreational activities to reduce the toxic stress they are experiencing in vulnerable conditions. The benefits of the activities will help children increase their resilience and capacity for adaptation they might not otherwise develop.

The mission of the SPOT clinic is to improve the health of people in situations of disenfranchisement, marginalization and vulnerability who are not reached, or inadequately reached, by the public healthcare network. Bell’s donation will be used to hire another psychologist one evening a week for their sixth mobile clinic located at the YWCA in Quebec City, to offer frontline support to vulnerable women.
