The AFC has a new case manager!
My name is Lisa Brousseau and it’s my pleasure to introduce myself as The AFC’s new case manager.
I am a registered social worker in Ontario and completed my Master’s degree in social work from the University of Toronto and my Bachelors of Arts in psychology from Laurentian University. My experience in the field includes working with adults and seniors who have mental-health and substance-abuse issues, acquired brain injury or are dealing with bereavement and financial distress.
I’m thrilled to have joined The AFC staff late last year. In my short time here, I’ve connected with dozens of people who find themselves in severe financial distress because of events outside of their control. It has been extremely rewarding to be able to help them get the financial help that they need. As I settle into my role here, I look forward to doing even more to help the most vulnerable members of our community.
The Emergency Financial Aid program that The AFC is known for will continue and there are no plans to change how financial assistance is given out. Clients in need of additional resources, however, now have access to someone with experience navigating various systems and acting as an advocate for those in need.
My role will evolve over time and in response to the needs of our diverse clientele. However, my commitment to ensuring the health and wellbeing of those in our community by providing them with compassionate and confidential support will remain the same.
I’m delighted to begin 2018 as part of such a caring community and I look forward to building on the important work that we do.
Best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2018.
