The Canadian Mental Health Association Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (CMHA HKPR) is pleased to announce that we have been selected as the recipient of the latest grant from the 100 Women of Northumberland, receiving $6,700 to go towards our Trans Peer Outreach program. The donation was presented to CMHA HKPR on June 22nd, 2022 at the 100 Women of Northumberland’s June meeting at the Mill in Cobourg.
The 100 Women of Northumberland consists of a group of local women who meet four times per year and select a local registered charity or non-profit to receive a collective grant in the amount of the membership contributions at the time of the meeting. The idea is that by joining funds, the group can make more of an impact, creating real change within the community.
CMHA HKPR’s Trans Peer Outreach program offers supports and services for transgender and gender diverse people and their families, to assist them to improve the quality of their lives through the provision of community-based, client centered care that supports positive interdependence. Services are delivered by people with lived-experience as a transgender or gender-diverse person, and who also may have experience living with a mental health concern.
CMHA HKPR and the Trans Peer Outreach program would like to sincerely thank the 100 Women of Northumberland for selecting us to receive their latest grant.
“We are so grateful for the support of the 100 Women of Northumberland. This grant will go directly towards enhancing the Trans Peer Outreach Family Supports by allowing us to offer more group opportunities and 1:1 supports. This will allow us to help more family, friends, caregivers, and loved ones of individuals who are trans, non-binary, or gender questioning,” says Carl Cruise-Baxter, Trans Peer Outreach Worker with CMHA HKPR.
