The Coldest Night of the Year is a winterrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. Join us on February 25, 2023 - team up, fundraise, walk, and gather for good... because it’s cold out there.
Networks Ministries is a registered charitable non-profit society located in Dawson Creek, B.C. Networks exists to provide genuine physical, emotional, and spiritual help to those in and around the Dawson Creek community.
We understand that although at some time or another we all need a little help, asking for help can be a hard thing to do. At Networks we are committed to offer help, care and support in a way that is understanding, compassionate, and non-judgmental. Whether an individual is there to get a cup of coffee, a hot shower, or an hour of shopping in our pantry or free store to get the things that they need without the pressure of their tight or non-existent budget, Networks is there to assist.
Networks Ministries uses a wrap around delivery model for the work we do. A wrap around model means that we surround (wrap) a client with services that can improve their situation. This wrap around approach begins at the intake process, where we sit down and ask questions to find out what service providers in the community are already providing support. From there, we create an individual plan using a "team approach". When we are providing assistance; this team could be built of other services in the community or people who are important in that person's life. Those we help are in the driver's seat and the team is in the support roll. This approach uses the strengths, resources, and skills that the individual or family already has and builds from there.
Services provided directly through Networks Ministries includes shopping at our pantry or ‘free store’, support with one of client care workers with optional informal counselling, as well as support applying for disability and filing paperwork with Network’s registered Social Worker. Services provided through partnership with other providers in our community include (but are not limited to) additional individual support with a case manager from Northern Health ICMT (Intense Case Management Team).
