Comments Off on Participation Support Services Partners with St. Joseph’s Lifecare Centre

Participation Support Services as a non-profit charitable organization is currently supporting over 350 individuals in our community with either a physical disability, a complex health care need and/or senior.

On June 26th, Participation Support Services celebrated their Annual General Meeting at St. Joseph’s Lifecare Centre. The AGM was marked with a Ribbon Cutting for their new home at the Stedman House, located on the grounds of St. Joseph’s Lifecare Centre. At this celebration, Participation Support Services was also able to unveil their new accessible bus.

Both projects are a result of wonderful partners and friends within the community.

‘The people who are supported by Participation Support Services are very grateful to the many friends within the community who understand the difficulty of obtaining accessible housing and transportation’. Sherry Kerr, Executive Director PSS

St. Joseph’s Lifecare Centre has completed extensive renovations at the Stedman House to allow Participation Support Services to lease this location as a permanent residence. Fire Code regulations have changed significantly since the house was last used as a residence hence the need for extensive renovations.

In addition to St. Joseph’s Lifecare Centre’s significant work to prepare the Stedman House for Participation Support Services, the Rotary Club of Brantford – Sunrise also contributed $125,000.00 towards equipment needed by Participation Support Services to support 7 people with physical disabilities and complex care needs within the home.

“The Stedman House is a perfect, comfortable small home that suits the needs of individuals who require Supportive Housing. Participation Support Services is delighted to have entered into a partnership with St. Joseph’s Lifecare Centre and the Rotary Club of Brantford – Sunrise to make it a home for 7 individuals’” says Sherry Kerr, Executive Director of Participation Support Services. This will allow Participation Support Services the ability to once again respond to emergency housing situations with capacity created by the move to Stedman.

Receiving the new custom-made van this week, as we prepare for opening of the Stedman House was an added reason to celebrate. The custom van took 6 months to complete and was made possible by the Cowan Foundation, Brantford Power’s Annual BBQ, the Roger and Edith Davis Foundation, the Samuel Stedman Foundation, the Rotary Club of Brantford and the Rotary Club of Brantford- Sunrise, as well as donation in memory of Olga Kalynowysh, and Ian McGuire as well as the Jarislowsky Fraser Donor Advised Foundation.
