Assisting Assisted Living
- community hub in Belle River -
The Greater Essex County District School and Assisted Living Southwestern Ontario will unveil a new community partnership on Tuesday, February 5th which benefits both organizations and the broader community.
The official announcement will be made at 11:00 a.m. at Belle River District High School (333 South St., Belle River).
Under the Ministry of Education's Community Hubs Capital Funding for Minor Retrofits program, the GECDSB was able to renovate space at the high school to meet the needs of Assisted Living for their Neighbourhood of Care initiative.
Assisted Living will operate an office within the high school for a program that provides in-home assistance to adults with physical disabilities and senior citizens in the Belle River area. As well as utilizing surplus space in the school, as a tenant, Assisted Living will also be able to provide opportunities for BRDHS students to earn community service hours toward their graduation requirements.
