New Directions Shows our Pride
For the first time since the pandemic began, New Directions had the opportunity to show our pride and march in the Winnipeg Pride Parade.
We want to thank all of our amazing community members who joined us on that day and showed their own PRIDE!
New Directions Turns 137
This past month we were thrilled to celebrate our 137th Anniversary!
As the oldest social services agency in Western Canada, we can look back over our history and see how we have helped many individuals achieve their dreams.
But we can also look to the future and know that thanks to our staff, volunteers, donors, service providers and community members, we can continue to help individuals reach their life-long goals.
We have had an amazing 137 years, and we will continue to provide the best services possible to our community!
Regional Services Hits 10-Year Milestone
Our Regional Services (based out of Portage la Prairie), celebrated 10 years of providing services to individuals outside of the Winnipeg area.
The services have grown over the years, and we are excited to see their growth in the years to come.
New Directions’ Director of Clinical Services Speaks To Media on Mental Health Supports for Children and Youth
“The demand for mental health supports for children and youth is increasing, partly due to the pandemic.” Dr. Lindsay Woods C.Psych, New Directions’ Director of Clinical Services, spoke with CTV News about the growing wait times for mental health services for children and youth in the province.

Dr. Carolyn Peters R.S.W., our Director of Organizational Development and Learning, had the great opportunity to work with a student and professor from the University of Winnipeg on a project called Barriers and Enhancers of Info-structure, Evaluation, and Evidence Use at New Directions’ Supported Independent Living Program.
The students and Dr. Peters presented the project at the Canadian Evaluation Society National Conference, which took place from June 13 – 15.
