In recognition of our 50th anniversary and our continued commitment to provide the best care to our clients, we have undertaken an ambitious project. CLI has purchased and are currently renovating the former Home Hardware building at 307 Main Street. This new facility will provide space for day programs for up to 50 adults and room to amalgamate our administrative functions. The second floor apartment will provide additional housing for clients of Community Living disability Services. This larger space will also give us the opportunity to develop new options for skills training through our new social enterprises, the Global Garage and Art House (GGAH) and D&D cakes and café.
Our facility, with its restored historic façade, will play a significant role in the enhancement of Main Street Stonewall. GGAH will create economic activity and will fill a void currently being experienced as a result of the relocation of the Home Hardware. We have a proven track record of enhancing business on Main Street through GGAH in its current location. Over the Christmas season, GGAH attracted shoppers from surrounding communities and Winnipeg. These shoppers bought goods from CLI, and they visited other local gift shops and restaurants, providing benefit to several local business owners.
Any project of this size takes money. Our fundraising goal is $1,250,000. We are asking today for your support. We believe that our clients deserve to lead rich and rewarding lives as fully integrated members of the community. To do this we need your help. Your contribution, either financial or in-kind, will be greatly appreciated and will be used to enhance the lives of individuals and the community as a whole.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss this project further I would be more than pleased to arrange a meeting. I would invite you to contact our office at 204-467-9169 or TaraS@aclinterlake.ca.
