|Prince Rupert's Trinity Recovery Home will be putting
funding from the BCMEA to work on a local program
A valuable local agency that looks to help those on the road to addictions recovery is receiving some stable funding from one of the Prince Rupert area's largest employers.
Monday, the British Columbia Maritime Employer's Agency announced a three year funding commitment of 15,000 dollars for Prince Rupert Trinity Recovery House, with the funding to be put towards their My Recovery Plan.
The announcement from yesterday notes how the the investment will be dedicated to fund Trinity's "Recovery Capital" program, which will use the software to develop modern, individualized wellness plans for clients on the road to recovery.
These wellness plans address a wide range of lifestyle issues such as housing, spirituality, access to doctors and dentists, education, and family support in addition to drug and alcohol counselling.
The focus of investment in the community and its people was the focus for Mike Leonard the President and CEO for BCMEA.
"The way to foster a healthy workplace is to invest in our community and our people. We know that a sustainable port community is one that supports life-changing programs like Recovery Capital, and we're honoured to do our part to help those struggling with addictions in the next chapter of their recovery journey."

The funding announced on Monday goes along with that already in place which will see a 20,000 dollar investment in the critical program by 2025. To date nearly 65 men in Prince Rupert have accessed the program as part of their recovery plan.
"We are incredibly proud of our accessibility to this critical tool that helps people measure where they are on their recovery path and provides meaningful information on what they need to do to be successful,. Not only does this allow us to better plan for our clients' wellbeing, but it also gives them the agency to take control of their destiny. This program is transforming lives and we couldn't be more thankful to the British Columbia Maritime Employers Association for this impactful commitment." -- Luke Dufour, Program Coordinator at Trinity
