Valoris holds open house at new multi-service centre in Embrun

Valoris held an open house at its new location in Embrun on June 1, as the final step in the implementation of the new facility.

The centre will be replacing the Valoris office in Casselman and will offer services including psychosocial interventions, different types of group sessions, child protection services and more.

“One person, with multiple needs, can have access to multiple services in one place,” said Marc-André Amyot, spokesperson for the organization, in an email.

He added, Embrun was chosen for its central location for communities in western Prescott-Russell.

The overall project cost about $5 million, with the province investing about $4 million.

While services moved to Embrun late last year, the open house allowed the surrounding communities to have full access to the facility.

Valoris has two other similar multi-service centres, one in Rockland and the otehr in Hawkesbury.

According to its 2015-2016 community report, the caseload was split almost evenly between the three locations. That same report says, “3,735 people received services from Valoris and its related agencies,” with 114 children in its care.
