Drop-in Social Work:
The social worker provides counselling, case management and advocacy to clients in our service area. Lamp’s social worker helps people with a range of concerns including income support, family and relationship issues, feelings of depression and anxiety, coping with illness, and dealing with past or current abuse and drug and alcohol use.
How it works:
If you come to LAMP for the drop-in, your first stop will be with the front desk staff. Let them know you are here for the social work drop-in, and sign your name on a list.
The drop-in is held on Mondays between 1 and 3:30 pm.
Because the drop-in works on a first come, first served basis, the front desk staff will ask you to sign the list so that they can keep track of the order that people come in. If you are uncomfortable giving your real name, you are welcome to give any name you’d like.
After you sign your name, have a seat in the waiting room. When the social worker becomes available, they will call your name and take you to their office.
Once the social worker takes you to their office, you will have a chance to tell them about what type of help you need. Because this is a drop-in, you may not get very much time with the social worker. If you feel that you need more time, you can ask the social worker for an appointment for a later time. The social worker may also provide you with the names and phone numbers of other organizations that may be able to help.
