This past fiscal year, we continued to experience an unprecedented increase in requests for support from 63% in 2021 to 81% this past year. In addition, 79% of our clientele were affected by suicide or overdose deaths, all directly related to the pandemic and the ongoing drug toxicity and mental health crisis. Our staff and volunteers continue to require added training to help us provide the high level of support needed for those affected by traumatic grief, which wasn't part of our regular scope before the pandemic. It is imperative we continue our programming, especially for our community’s children and youth who are experiencing an unprecedented number of drug toxicity and suicide deaths among their peers and families. Sadly, Statistics show that suicidal ideation can increase by 50% in children and adolescents who have lost a loved one by sudden death. The Campbell River Hospice Society only receives 7% of our annual budget from the government. The remaining is from fundraising, individual, corporate, service club donations and our Second To None Thrift Store.
