Kelowna: Community Connections Groups!

Hey everyone:

Thanks to all for your patience as we have moved to two branches of our Community Support delivery: one-to-one and group services. In doing so, we hope to deliver services in ways that meet your needs better.

Thanks to Amit, Joel and Kathy (behind the scenes) who put together this excellent video that describes the groups we have going on as well as openings that we have in each of them. Please check it out below and ask your Facilitator at CLBC for more information about the groups that we have to offer and a referral if it sounds good to you!

See ya out there!

Sad news…

Hi everyone:

It is with a very heavy heart that we let you know that we lost James Croston to cancer on Saturday. James, for those that may not have known him, was a Home Share Provider, Home Share Coordinator, Senior Coordinator and the Service Coordinator for Home Share at Community Connections. He literally performed every role with respect to Home Share at the agency and developed many great relationships with coworkers at the agency, Home Share Providers and our communities in his various roles along the way.

I will miss his tremendous sense of humour, his persistent quest for knowledge, constant commitment to improve things, his intensity and, most of all, his friendship.

James is survived by his loving family who were by his side throughout his illness, particularly his young son and daughter. A Go Fund Me page has been set up with the proceeds going to James’ kids. The link is here should you wish to donate.

As you can imagine, it will take us a few days to catch up on work that we had promised, my apologies particularly for the delay in getting out the breakdowns of the recent Home Share increases and retroactive payments if they applied to you. I will get those out to you as soon as I can.

Thank you all for your support of the CCSS team and especially your support of James.

He will be dearly missed.
Jackie and Brian (on behalf of the whole Home Share Team at Community Connections Support Services)

Update: James’ obituary is here.
