A young mother sits across from you, her eyes red from tears. Her two children were removed by family services this morning. She didn’t have money for food last week; she’s not welcome at the foodbank; she has a history of alcohol abuse. She pleads for your help, “Can you help me get my babies back?” You are the counsellor for the community. What do you do?
