NFCSNotes:Happenings at NorthernFrontenac Community Services

In-Home Respite Program: The Community Support Services Program is pleased to announce that In-Home Respite will soon be available to those families and individuals who are dealing with the heavy burden of caregiving. A qualified respite worker will be able to come into their home to supervise and interact with the family member while the caregiver takes a much-needed break. Please watch our column for further announcements as this service is developed.

Christmas Hamper Thank Yous: Many thanks, Al and Gail Jackson, Ron Hollywood and Peter Brugmans for their assistance in delivering the Christmas hampers in December. Without our many volunteers, our work would very quickly overwhelm us.


Community Drop In Receives Funding: The Community Drop In, a weekly drop in program coordinated by Adult Protective Services, has received $2,500 from the Kingston area office of the Ministry of Community and Social Services. Innovation grants are offered periodically to programs in the developmental services that promote integration and benefit the broader community. The Community Drop In has been providing social and recreational opportunities for a large number of people. The money will be used to purchase commercial cookware, a new stove and craft and game supplies.

Income Tax Volunteer Training: On Monday February 6 from 9am to 4pm, a training session will be held at the Child Centre for volunteers willing to complete returns for low-income families and individuals. If interested, please call Joyce, Northern Frontenac Community Services, 279-3151. The training will be provided by Canada Revenue Agency
