We have EXCITING news to share with you.
As you know, we are currently operating our programs and services from three separate locations. Thanks to all of you, and to my amazing employees, these arrangements have served us well. However, it has been my intent, for some time now, to bring everyone under one-roof for efficiency, simplicity, community and to provide you with even more programs and services.
It’s happening….we have a new location at 270 Braidwood Street. We will be working with engineers and contractors to renovate this building, over the next year, to create a safe, accessible and beautiful environment. We expect to open the doors at 270 Braidwood in approximately one year from now.
More news, we have sold 267 Stewart Street, and we will be moving out by October 31st. Our Building Bridges, Individualized Service and Advanced Skills staff will be moving to additional space made available at the Trinity Church location.
Sheila, Jackie and I will also have a temporary location for a year. Our phone number 705-742-0806 will remain the same. Sheila will answer all your calls and get your messages to the staff, as always.
Our Employment Supports program and our Finance Department will remain at 264 Stewart Street until it’s time to move into 270 Braidwood.
As always, I want to reassure everyone that the services, programs and events that you currently enjoy will not be disrupted during this time. We will do everything within our power to ensure safe and seamless transitions for all our families during this year.
If you have any questions, concerns or comments I invite you to attend any of the information nights that are scheduled below or call Jackie (Ext. 226), JJ (Ext. 236) or myself (Ext. 230) anytime.
