The Newcomer Community Development Program offers group programming to support Winnipeg Newcomers in their settlement, mental health and wellness. Newcomers face many challenges settling in a new country that can include: social isolation, trauma, language, and understanding complex systems. Our goal is to help reduce these barriers and support resilience by providing group programming that reflects the needs of the community. Aurora Family Therapy Centre provides newcomers with a safe space to share experiences and ask questions, connect with the local community, and gain information that will aid in their overall wellness.
All of our group programming is developed through feedback from participants and consultation with ethnocultural communities. Our agency collaborates with various settlement service providers and other community agencies to provide ongoing services to participants who are experiencing barriers to services and support. This ensures that we are providing programs that are reflective of the needs and interests of the participants and community.
Aurora Family Therapy Centre provides groups that target specific areas of need. These groups include, but are not limited to:
- Men’s Healthy Living
- Anger Management
- Domestic Violence
- Youth Leadership Programs
- Gender Based Violence
- Women’s Groups
- Information & Orientation Workshops
All of our groups are provided at no cost. For referrals and/or more information about our Newcomer Community Development Programs, please contact the program coordinator using form below.
