I was thrilled to find MAPS and understand how they might help us. We are a very new NPO with very limited funding and only one staff. To have this also as a free service was extremely empowering for the SWESA Board. We are very grateful.
We identified that one of the city libraries is right in the middle of a senior’s population where there are risk factors for isolation. The library became an obvious partner for us in reaching out to this group with programming for seniors.
The maps and other tools provided for our community are now the baseline for our work ahead, addressing Intimate Partner Violence at a policy level.
Deborah assisted us in setting up and attending a meeting with three new MLAs to discuss our profile /demographics, facilitate a relationship and have their offices join our monthly meetings.
Many thanks to Deborah for all the efforts made by her and her team to help us connecting with individuals/agencies, we were and are still in need of.
