Community Award 2023: A Letter From Louise.

A Letter from Louise is one of our flagship programs offered, providing a distinctive service that facilitates safe and meaningful connections among our clients. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it caters to people of all ages, offering a valuable tool in the fight against social isolation and loneliness, both of which can significantly affect one’s mental and physical health. A Letter From Louise provides a safe platform to share personal stories, reminisce about memories, and exchange experiences in a way that’s often overlooked in today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world. Striving to bring individuals together and creating a positive impact on mental health and overall well-being in our community.
