My name is Joy!
My purpose is to provide support and comfort to children, youth and families who are victims of crime and trauma. For some people who may be feeling anxiety and loneliness, I can bring a pleasant distraction and this can raise a human’s spirit and brighten their day!
I provide a calm environment to help humans tell their story when it’s difficult for them. I can be an ice breaker when people feel nervous and I can also provide physical comfort when a human can’t.
I work for the Cornwall Police Service and my main job is to help people feel better.
