Job Coach Program Eases Back into the Community
July 2022 - After a long hiatus from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bridge Adult Service Centre's Job Coach program has slowly begun to re-introduce clients back into community placements. With clients beginning back at Breakfast at Brittany's, Bambino's Pizzeria & Fine Food, Dooly's, Needs, Sobeys, Superstore, Frank & Gino's, Harrison's Home Hardware, Centennial Villa, Alder Meadow Farm, and more, we are so grateful for the community support and for welcoming our clients back with excitement. These placements bring such joy to the clients and a sense of purpose to their day.
