EarlyON Mobile Services Hub Launches in Sault Ste. Marie

0

Child Care Algoma and Social Services are pleased to introduce the Mobile Services Hub which, beginning this summer, will provide neighborhoods with better access to EarlyON Child and Family Centre services as well as further integrate EarlyON programming into the whole community.

The introduction of this new program to our community is made possible as a result of joint investments in funding from both the Federal and Provincial government. It supports the Ministry of Education‘s vision to transform EarlyON child and family programs into an increasingly integrated, cohesive system of services and supports for children ages 0-6 and their parents and caregivers. This is the first service of its kind in Northern Ontario.

Watch for the EarlyON Mobile Services Hub, travelling throughout the City of Sault Ste. Marie, visiting a variety of neighbourhoods where families live and where regular services are not close by. As an EarlyON program, the mobile hub provides child and family centered activities and services that adapt to meet the unique needs of the families who attend.

Both organizations are active partners in the Mayor’s Every Breakfast Counts initiative, and the EarlyON Mobile Services Hub is stocked with nutritious food to provide to children of all ages. When children see the mobile hub, they can expect food that is prepared by United Way’s Harvest Algoma to be on board and available to them.
An official mobile services launch will be held in early fall.
