April 1, 2022 marks the beginning of a new chapter for AFM as our organization will begin the operational steps to shift certain roles and functions under regional health authorities and transition operational responsibility to Shared Health. This visionary work is a direct result of the planning efforts and engagement initiated through Manitoba’s Health System Transformation initiative and Mental Health & Addictions Strategy.
Our clients and staff will not experience any changes in services or programming, nor how they are accessed as part of this transition. You may start to see the name Shared Health in some of our communications, materials or on our website/social media over the coming weeks and months. These gradual changes are part of our activities to become part of Shared Health.
Your generous support of our programming over our legacy has helped many Manitobans with substance use challenges. You have been on this road with us for your own personal reasons and we invite you to continue this journey – together – toward an integrated mental health and addiction services in Manitoba built on care and compassion, recovery and wellness.
Ways to Give:
AFM will no longer be able to accept donations directly as we transition our operational responsibility to Shared Health. As a registered charitable organization, Shared Health accepts donations to support various service areas, including its mental health and addictions programs to which we will now be part of.
To donate, please mail your generous gift via cheque format to:
Shared Health – ATTN: DONATIONS
791 Notre Dame Avenue
Winnipeg, MB, R3E 0M1
When donating, please enclose a letter with directions that you would like your gift to be used for mental health and addictions services and note if there is a specific facility or program that the contribution should be directed to.
Donations received without a direction will be used for general purposes.
We are grateful for your friendship and support over the many years. Thank you for your ongoing consideration when choosing to donate to a cause that is meaningful to you.
