Last night (May 3rd, 2018) was the Good Neighbours Award event hosted by ANHBC (Association of Neighbourhood Houses). It was a fun and eventful evening. Congratulations to all the award recipients and we thank them for their commitment and contributions to the community.

The Blog/Computer team are an inspiratuional and motivating group of women that share their expertise with social media tips and safety measures to the online world.
The Youth GNA Award goes to Celine Co.

The Corporate GNA goes to Renfrew Care Centre.
Renfrew Care Centre has been involved with FHNH for at least 10 years. On numerous occasions, they have supported us with space to run the Family Caregiver Support group and guidance to the caregivers and seniors needs. In addition, joint projects such as the Senior Art Project in 2015 left us a memorable piece of artwork that marked a time of collaboration and community.
With gratitude, we continue our relationship with Renfrew Care Centre and appreciate their open welcoming from Debbie Mitchell, Recreational Manager, and all the staff and employees. Their ongoing support with the Engaging Abundant Community is very much appreciated and we look forward to building stronger connections.
