April 32020

Dear SACHA friends and Hamil­ton community,

I am writ­ing to pro­vide an update on SACHA ser­vices dur­ing these ever chang­ing times.

SACHA con­tin­ues to take steps to pro­tect the health and safe­ty of our ser­vice users, vol­un­teers, staff and com­mu­ni­ties in Hamil­ton. There­fore, in com­pli­ance with requests from lead­ing health author­i­ties for indi­vid­u­als to stay home, the SACHA office will remain closed until May 42020.

We have post­poned our Annu­al Choco­late Fest Fundrais­er from May 28, 2020 to the fall. All tick­ets sold thus far will be valid for the fall date.

SACHA staff are work­ing remote­ly and can be reached via email or tele­phone. You can call our office at 9055254573 and leave a voice­mail. You can also send us a mes­sage using our online con­tact form http://​sacha​.ca/​c​o​ntact. Intakes for coun­selling are ongo­ing and our Coun­sel­lors are offer­ing dis­tance coun­selling to sur­vivors. Our Coor­di­na­tors for the Pub­lic Edu­ca­tion Pro­gram and Diverse Com­mu­ni­ties Out­reach Pro­gram are cur­rent­ly work­ing on online tools and vir­tu­al work­shops for sur­vivors. We will keep you informed via social media and our web­site www​.sah​ca​.ca as updates become available.

I wish take a moment to thank our incred­i­ble team at SACHA, staff and vol­un­teers, who are work­ing dili­gent­ly to sup­port sur­vivors in our city of Hamil­ton. A big thank you also to every­one who is work­ing around the clock on the front lines to keep us all safe. We see you, we appre­ci­ate you.

Final­ly, if you are sur­vivor in need of imme­di­ate sup­port, please call our 24-hr Sup­port Line at 9055254162.

You are not alone.
We believe survivors.

Sin­ce­ra­mente,

Jes­si­ca Bonilla-Damptey
