Thrive Safety Club (TSC)
Join Thrive Safety Club (TSC) as we form community connections! TSC hosts speakers, special events and discussions, and shares kudos by honoring the folks who help the community feel safe! Each month the club will alternate between speakers and walks. Watch our Facebook page and posters for information.
Thrive Safety Club is an established group that provides a safe place for the community to gather and discuss concerns of living in the community that has experienced increased violence and substance misuse. Through our person-centred approach, we have found that our participants want to get out into the community to help others feel safe and supported. Thrive has adapted this monthly social program to include speaker nights, regular support circles, meetings to honor community members with “kudos”, resources, connections and community networking. Our community members who want to make a difference participate actively in the preparation and execution of the outreach walks. Thrive staff, a crisis counselor and community members also hand out harm reduction supplies, provide support and encouragement, and share resources. We are in the process of creating bright green safety club t-shirts for our team to be more visible. Club participants have the opportunity to obtain their NVCI, crisis management, food handlers, first aid training and learn more about substance use and harm reduction strategies with Thrive’s support. This is an opportunity for community folks to be included, to have a voice, and to make a difference.
Join us at our next meeting: Tuesday, July 25th at 5:00 pm
Join our compassionate conversation: Supporting our community who live unsheltered.
This July we will discuss the high levels of unhoused individuals in Winnipeg, and how to make our city more supportive to those who are struggling. Also, what training the WPS has regarding trauma informed practices around being unhoused and what policies and procedures are used today vs 10 years ago. Is homelessness a topic of conversation and at what level in the WPS?
