Support the Ally Centre
We are giving support to the Ally Centre and recognizing all of the essential services that they provide to the community. The Ally Centre, formerly the AIDS Coalition of Cape Breton, has been an important part of the community for over 25 years. They provide many services that benefit the people living in Cape Breton and we are asking for support from the community to ensure that these services remain available. The Ally Centre is integral to the health and well-being of the citizens of Cape Breton, especially to those who are marginalized, vulnerable and in need of support and care. The services they provide protect and serve the area and this needs to continue. The Ally Centre aims to reduce barriers by providing primary health care services in a non-judgemental and caring environment. Below are some of the services that the Ally Centre provides. Funding is needed in order to continue offering these programs.
