Niagara Health Foundation press release – Niagara Health Foundation is pleased to announce the winner of the Niagara Health Lottery. The lucky ticket number NH–2423288 belongs to St.Catharines resident, Jackie Billard. Jackie took home the grand prize amount of $110,160.
All proceeds from the online 50/50 raffle will support the Family Resource Centre for the Mental Health & Addictions Program at Niagara Health.
The Family Resource Centre will ensure that patients and families interact with a family engagement partner who has lived experience as a patient, family member or primary caregiver of a patient. The Centre will assist patients in navigating the services and programs available to them and their families at Niagara Health and in the broader Niagara community. Most importantly, it will provide vital connections to supporting families with the tools, confidence and comfort they need to know that they are not alone while supporting their loved ones during their time of need.
“The Family Resource Centre gives us an opportunity to better support patients and families,” says Barb Evans, Director Patient Care, Mental Health and Addictions Program, Niagara Health. “Family and peer presence in the Centre will assist patients and families to connect with ongoing resources that facilitate individual and family recovery. The funds raised from Niagara Health Lottery will support our program immensely and allow us to continue our collaborative work with patients and families.”
