At Integrity, you really feel like you are a part of a team and that the work you do is appreciated. The support and guidance I have received from my supervisors and co-workers is amazing! I can always count on them to be there if I have a question, need advice, or just want to talk.  

As both a Human Services Counsellor and Home Health Care worker, I also get to work with a variety of clients. Every client brings something special to the table; whether it be with their infectious personalities, their life experiences, or other qualities that make them unique. The relationships I build with my clients are truly invaluable and I look forward to the new experience that each day brings.
