Board of Directors
Board Chair’s Report for 2016
The Housing Resource Centre of South Georgian Bay and Orillia is “THE FIRST STOP” for those in crisis and who need assistance to find housing that they can afford.
Since its inception The Housing Resource Centre has worked to find the most effective ways of serving its clients. We work closely with a number of local agency’s to provide services: emergency housing, assistance with utility’s and matching clients to housing they can afford. Beginning in 2015 working with our partners at Simcoe County we are able to directly assist clients with funds to get settled in a home.
With these changes we are now able to provide a complete range of services. Much of the necessary funding is provided by Government, but additional fundraising is required to maintain the broad range of services we now offer.
The three-year Strategic Plan we prepared in 2015 will help direct the Agency going forward. It will insure we remain focused on our clients and develop the resources necessary to maintain the services.
The Housing Resource Centre of South Georgian Bay and Orillia is well positioned to face the future. The staff of the Housing Resource Centre takes their responsibilities seriously. They are dedicated to serving our clients and insuring that the funds we receive are used to deliver the most impact.
I want to thank the staff and management for their hard work in 2015. Thank you to the Board members for their ongoing commitment to the agency and for giving me their support in the past year. I want to offer my personal thanks to departing Board Member Barbara Sneyd and Rod Lebel for their dedicated service to the agency and the community. Thank you, for your years of hard work and dedication.
