Whitehorse Emergency Relief and Support Inc. (WERS) is a not-for-profit incorporated voluntary agency founded in 1967 to meet a need in the community for financial assistance and community support. Funded by Federal Government, Whitehorse City Council, local groups, private donations and trusts. We work in partnership with other relief agencies in Whitehorse to reduce duplication of assistance.
We provide services that aim to help individuals and families deal with a wide range of life situations. Our trained, multicultural group of volunteer Community Support Workers conduct one-to-one discussions, respecting the privacy of clients and the confidentiality of all client information. We respect all cultural, religious, gender and age differences and welcome all. Our services are free, independent, client-focused.
