Making it Better - Chris

My name is Chris and my life changed when I suffered a stroke.

Once the doctors and medical staff had done all they could, I still needed help. That’s when I found Adult Recreation Therapy Centre (ARTC).

The staff at ARTC are helping me reach my goal of being able to walk my daughter down the aisle when she gets married. It will take a lot of hard work, but with the help from the team at ARTC, I know I can do it.

This wouldn’t be possible with the support from Brant United Way. Without your donation, I wouldn’t be able to see my little girl to the altar.


Labour Community Advocate Program

Operated by union members, for union members, the Labour Community Advocate program offers confidential referrals, support, guidance and information to co-workers who need assistance finding services in our community.

Trained through the Canadian Labour Congress' Labour Community Advocate program, participants are volunteers or may be appointed by their local union. Labour Community Advocates are not a therapists or specialists; they are there to listen, identify, refer and follow up, acting as the link between a worker with a problem, and the appropriate service in the community.

If you're interested in providing a support to your co-workers and serving as a vital link between locals, United Way and community services, contact our Roxanne Bond at 519-752-7848 ext. 218 or by email at roxanne@brantunitedway.org.
