Renee Hesford from our Osborne Park Neighbourhood is a real superstar in everything she does. And her outstanding efforts most certainly don’t go unnoticed by the people surrounding her. That’s why Renee not only got nominated once but twice this month by people who think the Community Engager is simply AWESOME.
About a year ago Shay moved out of her mother’s house. She wanted to live her own life and make her own decisions. Shay is now self-sufficient and living independently. With a little support, she manages her own laundry, shopping, cleaning and meal preparation.

At Interchange we strive to achieve the best outcomes for people we support as well as our staff. And we know the best way to find out what we are doing right, where we need to improve and what people need and want is by simply asking them. That’s why we recently conducted a customer and staff survey.
