“We’ve hired one permanent staff member and one casual to support the regular staff when they’re away. We’re also continuing to recruit casual staff. We’ve arranged for a full return to the program in September and sent out letters notifying everyone.”

Whittleton said concerns about the program’s future we unfounded.

“I’ve always indicated this was a temporary closure. IHA has no intention of shutting this program down. We see the value it brings to our clients.”
