What We Do
We provide counselling, mentorship, and customized social supports to individuals and families who:
- want to move away from harmful belief systems (this may include extremist ideologies, hate groups, conspiracy theories, grievances, or groups that justify violence, etc.)
- are victims of hate crimes or incidents.
Our goal is to create lasting and meaningful change for program participants while promoting safer communities. We work independently from the government and law enforcement. While we’re based in Edmonton, we can provide in-person services anywhere in Alberta. We can also work remotely with participants from across Canada.
Our work is collaborative. It can look different for each participant, but ultimately, we help people reach their personal goals. We do this by connecting people to services and supports that will help them improve. We focus on helping participants create or reconnect to positive relationships to improve aspects of their life they want to work on.
Our work can include services such as:
- Support for basic needs
- Mental health support
- Talking to people who’ve gone through similar experiences
- Employment and educational support
- Personal and family counselling
- Religious counselling
- Crisis management
- Addiction support
- Connection to leisure and recreation
- Accessing community resources
- Support understanding and navigating systems (justice, health, housing, social assistance, etc.)
- News + Media Literacy
