FACES OF CITIZEN ADVOCACY

“I wondered if I would make a good advocate, who I might be matched with and if I would enjoy the experience. I took the plunge and in July 2010 was matched with Patty-Ann. My match experience has been very rewarding. Patty-Ann has a fantastic sense of humour. She has taught me a lot about enjoying simple things in life and that most challenges in life can be overcome by remaining positive and persevering. I wish more people would consider being matched. It is a win-win situation for all involved.”

Melissa Fuerth

Everyday Champions

“For the past 2 1/2 years I have had the pleasure of working with Ernest after he moved here from Toronto. Having only his immediate family in the area, Ernest has since made connections in his community and formed many friendships. Most recently everyone in his support network got together to assist him plan his future. He titled this work of art “Ernest’s Happy Plan” which totally matches his personality!! Ernest truly is a pleasure to work with and I look forward to continuing my role as his Facilitator as he pursues his goals.”

Facilitator Lifetime Networks

“We weren’t sure Denis would benefit when you first approached us since he is non-verbal and fairly low functioning.  It was an incredibly worthwhile process  … Denis’ facilitator was a pleasure to work with … She took the time to answer all my questions, spent time with Denis in all the activities he participates in outside the home (school, play group, respite home) getting to know him better.  It was well worth it since the Person-Directed Plan reflects Denis 100%.  It is something we will surely use for years to come.”
