Social Work

The aim of our social work services is to assist healing by gaining a deeper understanding of who we are, and how our experiences have shaped us.


Services are provided by a social worker, with a focus on trauma-informed empowerment.  The Veith House Community Social Worker works within an anti-oppressive, critical perspective, with a focus on the strengths that each service users brings with them.

Throughout the therapeutic sessions, there may be an opportunity for the Social Worker to assist individuals through advocacy.  Advocacy will appear different for every service user’s unique needs, but it may involve working with other community groups to support social justice issues, or contacting an individual’s Income Assistance worker to facilitate communication between the worker and the service user.


Services include:

Crisis management 

Case management (ongoing support)


Resource Navigation 

Short-term counselling 

Assistance with forms/paperwork/applications 


Client support (gift cards, toiletries, etc.)
