List of Contacts

In our previous communication on August 2nd, we informed you that Addictions Foundation of Manitoba experienced flooding at both our 1031 and 1041 Portage locations. Due to the flood, we needed to relocate staff which caused some temporary disruptions to programs and services.

Please note that AFM is actively seeking locations for the Women’s In-House Program, while staff members continue to complete intakes/assessments at the 614 Des Meuron Street location. We will notify you as soon as a site is secured.
