Everybody has worth and everybody has potential—that is what drives ASK Wellness to make a difference in our community. ASK Wellness provides a continuum of services to help individuals on a journey to wellness. ASK Wellness supports individuals in our community and provides them with opportunities and the resources to change their current situation. It’s about reaching out to those people who are homeless and battling addictions, helping them find housing and medical care, addressing their addictions, stabilizing mental health issues and ultimately, providing them with the skills to re-enter the work force. ASK Wellness administers an unconditional sense of hope to those who are convinced that they are incapable of ever achieving a stable, meaningful life.
The Needle Clean-Up Hotline takes reports from the public and coordinates the clean-up of dumped needles and syringes in public places anywhere in Kamloops. Through this initiative ASK aims to reduce the spread of HIV, Hepatitis C and other diseases.
The hotline is staffed Monday to Friday: 8:30am – 4:30pm with a voicemail option at other times.
