ACSDG SITUATION TABLE — ANNUAL REPORT (MAY 2021-MAY 2022)
The Akwesasne Cornwall Stormont Dundas Glengarry (ACSDG) Situation Table is a diverse gathering of human service professionals trained to collaborate in a weekly process of risk detection, disciplined information-sharing, and rapid intervention.
Our focus is on mobilizing service access and support sooner than conventional crisis response pathways allow. Our goal is to identify and mitigate elevations in risk before harm occurs. A “Situation” may pertain to a single individual suffering the onslaught of multiple risk factors; it may also pertain to something that is happening to a whole family or a group of people.
The Table is made up of a core group of primary agencies representing social services, police/justice, health services, and education. Ad-hoc agencies are called upon on a case-by-case basis to provide additional support to the primary agencies at the table when required.
This report is an opportunity to inform and communicate information regarding the work of the ACSDG Situation Table over the past year (May 2021 – May 2022) and to acknowledge the efforts of all Situation Table members who have dedicated themselves to the Situation Table and to the health and well-being of the most vulnerable members of our community.
