Guild Helpline

Helpline within the Guild – July 2021 (gethelp@vhwsg.ca )
We are initiating a resource helpline. The aim is to help make connections between members easier. The challenge for many of us is what to do or who to talk to when we need help or support, want more information, have a question or problem. The help line provides one place for any member to make an initial contact with a guild member who can assist them.
