She really enjoys her career with CLASI, and finds it very rewarding to coordinate support contracts for youth with varying abilities living in long term foster care who are referred by the Ministry of Social Services – Child & Family Programs.
The support contracts are designed to provide mentorship, support and quality of life to youth in care by providing activities in the community geared to the youth’s interests and abilities.
