Staffcrop 7897


The sense of well-being when you walk through our doors comes from people genuinely caring for one another. A desire to improve quality of life is at the heart of everything we do. To help those we serve get the most out of programs and life it is essential that management and staff know how to think outside the box. “Our team is well-trained, innovative and flexible in their approach.” says HR Director, Kim MacKinnon. “Volunteers provide additional support and share skills that allow staff to enhance programs and services.”
