Join us as we celebrate November 6th – Community Worker Appreciation Day.
Community-Based Organization (CBO) workers are there for our communities every day. They work in residential/group home settings, they assist with crisis services, they provide day programs for people with disabilities to support their independent living, they work in child care programs, and they support clients in addictions counseling/treatment programs.
They do this with instability from their government. Funding is offered on a year to year basis, some years with cuts; underfunding and unstable funding has caused recruitment and retention issues. Our CBO workers truly care about the wellbeing of their communities, even at their own personal cost.
It’s important to recognize this group whose work is crucial to the success of communities across the province.
In recognition of their valued work, SEIU-West invites you to participate in the Community Worker Appreciation Day Contest!
- Tell us up to three practical actions that the government can take to strengthen community-based services, ensuring these vital services will remain pillars in our community for decades to come.
- For an additional entry, name one of the Community-Based Organizations that are represented by SEIU-West and tell us why they are important to their community.
Send your answers to [email protected] by November 14th for your chance to win a gift card.
