Community Wellness Worker Program:

The Community Wellness Worker (CWW) Program is funded by the province through the Aboriginal Healing and Wellness Strategy (AHWS). The Strategy supports holistic approaches to the promotion of healthy living and the prevention of family violence. Community Wellness Workers in sixteen communities put the needs of the local Metis community first through the implementation of client driven services to reduce family violence and the promotion of healthy lifestyles through culture-based programming. Community Wellness Workers assist clients in identify concerns and assist them in developing action plans to address the concerns. This is achieved by sharing appropriate information with health and social agencies and through community events like crisis intervention workshops, sharing circles and community outreach that educates and promotes cultural awareness and illness prevention. Whenever possible Metis specific cultural approaches are integrated into the programs delivered. - See more at: http://www.metisnation.org/programs/health-wellness/community-wellness-worker-program/#sthash.4zuY5693.dpuf
