Peer support

Salvus is recognized provincially as a leader in peer support. As an important aspect of recovery, peer support is a relationship between people who have a common lived experience. Our Peer Program Coordinator is a Certified Peer Support Specialist who delivers Peer Support Training to those in the community who are looking to contribute their specific knowledge and expertise with others.


Mobile Health Unit

In 2022, Salvus launched the first mobile health unit in New Brunswick providing care to individuals in shelters who are experiencing barriers to traditional health care. Thanks to our partners who made the purchase of the unit possible, Medavie Health Foundation, the Saint John Human Development Council, and private physicians, we can take our work on the road. Staffing has been made possible by grants from Health Canada, the City of Moncton, and Saint John Human Development Council, and through our partnership with Horizon Health Network.
