Honours for Hearing Healing Hope

Regional | by Dan McLean  

Program receives funding and Attorney General's Award of Distinction.

Two milestones for Hearing Healing Hope in Grey Bruce.

The organization, which helps men who experienced childhood sexual abuse, received the prestigious Attorney General's Award of Distinction in April.

The group is also getting some much needed funding from the Ontario Victims Services and the Ministry of Attorney General.

Program Supervisor Steve Irwin says the funding is great news, but he says it's not nearly enough to meet their budgetary needs.

Irwin says they get referrals from other agencies and families in the community.

Irwin says their Counsellors use sensitivity and understanding to help male survivors of sexual abuse and their families.

He says their efforts combine traditional trauma recovery work with aboriginal teachings and healing practices.

Irwin also offers custom designed training for other provincial service providers who want to help those in need in other areas of Ontario.
