Jonah is rooted in our community
Jonah has been deeply committed to community involvement and partnerships since we started in 2011. We work with many agencies and they often refer their participants to Jonah for therapy and groups. All of our team members are community minded and come to Jonah's group practice with a long history of helping and serving in community settings; this is an essential value of what it means to be part of Jonah.
Since 2019, Fireside Design Build has been making monthly contributions that help Jonah offer community programming like sliding scale therapy access. We're grateful for this local business and their generous commitment to increasing access to wellbeing supports.
In 2018, Jonah moved from the Exchange District to our current location in the North End, next door to the Indigenous Family Centre. IFC is our landlord and we love to collaborate on various projects for our mutual participants and share space and ideas with them. Jonah and IFC have partnered together on several projects, including Jonah's sliding scale fee program, which IFC issues charitable receipts for. IFC, along with Ndinawe, share support and administrative responsibilities for the Wooden Pipe Lodge with Jonah.
Prior to Jonah's move to 462 Selkirk, our space was occupied for over 10 years by Ndinawe's Child and Youth Care Practitioner Training Program. We were fortunate to join the circle of community care and support that IFC and Ndinawe had created over many years. We are pleased to offer cultural supports alongside this Ndinawe program, along with Cree knowledge keeper; Carey Sinclair, who supports participants at both Ndinawe and Jonah, and helps care for the Wooden Pipe Lodge.
