Mission: Empowering individuals and families to nurture healthy communities.
Vision: Thriving Communities
The Sahara Family Support Program formulated in response to the South Asian communities' need for intervention and support in a variety of areas. This program recognizes the unique needs of a collectivist culture in a Western context. Thus, all services within this program provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services that deeply understand the collective consciousness of South Asians.
SFSP is based on the Integrated Holistic Service Delivery Model (IHSDM). This model combines the interventions that are most applicable to the client to facilitate a wrap-around experience in services. PCHS Calgary currently provides supports in the areas of mental health, addiction and family enhancement. Where there are gaps in service, PCHS Calgary has cultivated collaborations and partnerships to bridge and facilitate continuity of care. The SFSP continues to have a robust outreach and partnership building component that helps facilitates this client care.
