Our Clients are Leaders...
“Through our partnership with the reCONNECT program, our Healthier Living Centre Department has been able to provide an open, accessible and welcoming learning environment for older adults. The reCONNECT program strengthened our capacity and effectiveness by providing us with hardware and support, which allowed us to focus on our programming and client experience. Our computer lab is open to older adults in our community five days a week from 9am-3pm and houses ten fully operational systems for use. Our qualified instructor and helpful volunteers provide instruction via multiple formats – to best serve clients old and new.”
