January 17th, 2014
With 15 new programs, and now over 25 Better at Home programs delivering services across the province, 2014 is off to an extraordinary start!
January marks a new year, perhaps a new you, and a new round of Better at Home funded communities across the province. Joining the Better at Home team are: Campbell River, Nanaimo, North Okanagan including Vernon, Port Alberni, Powell River, Salt Spring Island, Sea to Sky including Whistler, Squamish, Pemberton and Mount Currie, four additional Vancouver programs: Hastings-Sunrise, Kitsilano, Kerrisdale-Oakridge -Marpole, Vancouver South, Victoria, and three First Nation communities: Stó:lō Territory, Gitxsan and Cowichan Tribes. This brings the total to 53 Better at Home programs.
With many programs diligently hiring their Program Coordinator(s) and developing their programs, Better at Home knows the importance of properly preparing new staff for the exciting road ahead. In addition to numerous training sessions on reporting, dealing with the media, and teleconferences where coordinators across the province chat about common topics, over 20 in-depth orientation sessions for coordinators have occurred, allowing new staff to learn the basics of the Better at Home project and how to grow a successful program.
