The Sahara Family Case-Management Program at Punjabi Community Health Services aims to improve family functioning by providing support to clients and their families. This is achieved through our one-to-one counseling and/or group programs, (i.e. Parenting program and Women’s group), and linking them to appropriate community/social resources. All services are offered in English, Punjabi, Hindi and Urdu.

  • provide culturally and linguistically appropriate programs and supports to promote healthy and successful families, and

  • to empower and educate clients and their families about community resources and Canadian systems.

PEER SUPPORT AND MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

As a part of our Sahara Family Support Program we have been providing holistic and culturally appropriate approaches to help stabilize and empower our clients so that they may lead health, happy and successful families. Our multi-faceted approach now includes a one on one Peer Support and Mentorship Program. This is an opportunity for clients to gain valuable guidance from trained volunteers who will serve as a support system in times of adversity. For volunteers, this program will provide a rich experience in working with members of the South Asian Community providing support in areas such as family conflict, addictions, mental health and overall well-being. By the end of this program volunteers will have completed a 10 session training program, shadowed a trained professional and received a certificate for program completion along with lasting network relationships. We are currently looking for those with a background in the social sciences (social work, psychology, sociology) or in healthcare programs such as nursing.   If you are personable, eager to learn and have a passion for making lasting changes in the community, please contact our Peer Support Coordinator, Nina Saini at nina.saini@pchscalgary.com or 403-710-3431.
