Introducing “The Rivers Program”

By Rise
18 April 2023
Recently Wungening, Multicultural Service Centre and Rise formed a consortium and were successful in securing funding for four years to deliver a group work program for those with mental health and/or Alcohol and other Drugs (AOD) issues.

We reached out to colleagues of all three organisations for a name that encapsulates the one team consortium approach that will deliver services to clients.

We’re pleased to share that the winning name is The Rivers Program, suggested by our very own Erin Boyd from Rise.

In Erins words,
“I chose this name because Rivers have numerous branches and streams, and like life, sometimes detours to bring new and interesting choices. A River is always flowing, it can flow quickly, it can change courses, but nothing can stop that River from Flowing.

Rivers connect people and communities to land, and to each other. Aboriginal Communities have a spiritual and customary living relationship with water in all its forms.”

Erin has received her prize of $100 and can bask in the glory of knowing she named a valuable program that will be supporting members of our community for years to come.

Thanks Erin, and everyone who sent through suggestions.
