24 HOURS A DAY – 365 DAYS A YEAR
With A Peer Support Worker Available
MOPS – Mobile Outreach Peer Support - TEAM
HELP US & HELP YOU = COMMUNICATION & INTERACTION
In January of 2015 this was not what we envisioned when the Mobile Team first went out across Ontario. Our Goal then was to share our WARMLINE. Let others learn what a WarmLine was and how it worked. We offered to help anyone setup their own, including the offer to provide our Manual all free.
Our Vision Improved when we found we could help and learn at the same time. We think in the process it will HELP both our Organization and Communities who provide Peer Support share and get involved.
THE MISSION: Interact, Provide and Improve the Communication Gap from One Person to Another and One Organization to Another, this increases the ability to help individuals who need it the most. Try to keep the Model of ‘plain old fashion human interaction’. Technology is great but not for hands-on mode and really some people, even executives need some of this sometimes. In the end even if it’s for a short while, its learning and building of knowledge that could improve someone, even one person’s well-being, would make it worthwhile.
THE GOAL FOR INDIVIDUALS:
ü Provide Peer Support in any form an individual wants or wherever they want
ü Be available for support for meetings, court etc as needed
ü Make referrals to services they need, if any.
ü No Referral needed to get involved
ü Provide help to other services for an individual’s needs
THE GOAL FOR LEARNING:
How to get the MOPS Team involved:
We don’t have a cost.
If you need the MOPS Team overnight or are a long distance from our Organization the two Organizations will have to preplan the arrangements and some SHARED cost for accommodations/km might need to be made. All of us have some restrictions on funding availability BUT no one said we can’t “think outside the box” to accomplish our goals”
The simplest way to reach the Team is by using email: email@example.com OR you can call the office.
The M.O.P.S. Team is known by their sudden appearance at doors in funky ties, we hope we get the chance to surprise you!
