Our partner organization, Creating Community Wellness Society, is dedicated to funding programs for community health and the Victoria Health Co-operative’s initiatives.
Thank you to the many generous people who donate to the Creating Community Wellness Society (CCWS) to help the Victoria Health Co-op to build the health and well-being of our community. We hope you will join this growing list of supporters of community-based wellness. Every donation over $10 to the Creating Community Wellness Society achieves two results:
- It earns the donor a Charitable Donation Receipt to use at tax time
- It helps with one of the Victoria Health Co-op’s programs
Send a donation to Victoria Health Co-op through CCWS to use where it is most needed (see categories below, after the form) OR tell us what skills you can contribute to the governance, management or administration of the Creating Community Wellness Society or the Victoria Health Co-op. Both are greatly appreciated by our volunteer team and Board of Directors.
To donate to the CCWS, please fill out the form below. All donations through form are collected using PayPal. Alternatively, visit our charity’s profile on Canada Helps.
YOU can specify what Victoria Health Co-op program you want your donation to support:
Community Wellness Education:
- Choices for a Healthy Lifestyle
Basic, short healthy living courses with topics chosen by the participants, often including Choices for Health Nutrition even on a tight budget, Choices for Safety at night, in the rain; Choices for entertainment on a tight budget, and the guaranteed favourite, Choices for Glamour on a budget. Would YOUR organization like to host a program?
- Hans Kai™
A formal six to nine month wellness program. Every session includes a social activity, healthy snack, physical activity, learning activity, and monitoring the basic health indicators. We work with other community organizations to host the program, to help enhance the wellness of their members, staff, residents, etc.
- Help us work on new program ideas – explore our programs page for more information.
- “Wellbeing Sundays”
Monthly By-Donation Event for members of the Victoria Health Co-op to learn about practitioner services, health and wellness modalities, engage in group discussions and explore how to develop “wellbeing” holistically.
- Health Access Fund
A funding resource for our Member-Practitioners to help support Members in need of a series of healing treatments but cannot afford the full cost of the services.
- Integrative Health and Wellness Care
Practitioners and medical professionals can work collaboratively and with increased communication to support patients who need support to recover from an illness or accident, or to manage long-term health issues. Some residents of Victoria, some members of the Vic Health Co-op, need the support of educators and healers from several modalities.
Organization for Health:
- Personal Health Record Management & Education
Helping individuals and families learn more about their rights and how to best access and manage persona medical records – specifically in case of an accident, out of the province, or being without a Primary Health Care provider.
- The Wellness Wheel
Educating and supporting individuals to advocate for their health and long-term care plan at different stages of their lives. This program focuses on ensuring that your long-term care will be provided according to an individual’s and/or family’s wishes.
Primary Health Care:
- Nurse Practitioner Project
We are almost ready to hire our Nurse Practitioner and provide advanced practice care to several hundreds of Victorians who have no Primary Health Care. We are working hard to purchase exam room furniture and equipment. With your donation, consider “adopting a thing” – exam and clinic supplies will need to be supplied before our Nurse Practitioners’s first day!
