Start Me Up Niagara’s ODSP Employment Supports Program has moved on up to a “deluxe” office in the sky!
Over the last few years we have seen amazing growth in our ODSP Employment Supports program. We have so many new participants and staff that we have burst out of our downstairs space.
We are now located at 43 Church Street, Unit 610 in downtown St. Catharines directly across from the market square. We will maintain a rotating staff person at the SMUN Centre to ensure availability to all our participants.
Change can be difficult but we are anticipating a lot of positive outcomes from the move. The space is filled with natural light and ready for on-site workshops. Computers are available for employment participants to use for job searching and business planning. In addition, the site is fully accessible with an elevator and accessible washrooms.
The move to 43 Church St. will strengthen our partnerships with the Coalition for Persons with Disabilities, in-building services like the BEC, and downtown agencies like the St Catharine’s Enterprise Centre and employers in the area.
Our enthusiastic employment team will be working hard over the summer to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. The same quality and down to earth services will continue in our new home. Keep an eye on social media and email to find out when we will be holding a general open-house to show off our new digs!
