Prince George

We are now in Prince George!

Meet our Prince George Facilitator, Gord Robertson

GordRobertson

Gord lives in Prince George with his wife Terry and daughter Bree-Anna, who lives with multiple challenges. He also has a son, Drew, who lives in Edmonton with his wife, Krysta. He retired from his job with the BC Forest Service after 36 years of service in 2014, and now devotes even more of his time to volunteering in the community for disability related causes (locally, regionally, and provincially) than he did before. He also enjoys spending time with Bree and her friends, experiencing the many things that living in Prince George has to offer. He loves to travel, especially planning and taking long road trips with his family, fishing, and photography. Gord is passionate about helping people with disabilities and their families have the best lives possible, and likes to lead by example.

Past Meetings:

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

Join the Prince George familyWORKs meeting Tuesday, March 8, at AiMHi on Kerry Street. Please see the message below from the facilitator, Gord:

This is just a friendly reminder that there will another meeting of familyWORKs at AiMHi on Tuesday at 7:00 PM. Please come out and meet other parents and family members to talk about the possibilities for employment for our sons and daughters. This initiative is targeted at parents and family members, not paid caregivers, service providers, employment professionals, or educators, like other programs such as Ready Willing and Able.

I know for some of you it may be hard to conceive of employment for  your loved one, but I think you may be surprised by what is happening in this area, even for people who on the surface seem to have little to nothing to offer an employer. I can tell you that we used to feel that way about Bree-Anna but we don’t anymore.

Hope to see you there. Please use the entrance on the far right of the front of the building.
