Hi everyone, those currently going through Grow Vantage know we are continuing classes on Zoom as usual for groups 50 and 51. On May 19th, Heather Hill will be one of the instructors filling the class in on Insurance.
Because this is one of those topics that is so essential to keep up with, I would like to extend the class (without charge) to any GVers out there who would like a refresher. We’ll begin at 6:30 pm.
If you would like to join us – please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the Zoom link for that night.
To all the mothers, grandmothers, step-mothers, those who are becoming mothers and all those who are not yet mothers…
Wishing you all a Happy Mother’s Day today – celebrating in whatever virtual way you are able.
Calls, Zoom calls, Skpe, text and social distancing enabled talk.

UNITED WAY SIMCOE MUSKOKA LAUNCHES RELIEF FUNDING FOR LOW-INCOME RESIDENTS AND THOSE AFFECTED BY COVID-19
In this article by Ian MacLennan – this paragraph has been moved up. Please check:
The Urgent Needs Fund is available to assist those in Simcoe Muskoka communities living in low-income households and those affected by COVID-19. This assistance comes in the form of one-time grants when existing services and resources are unable to meet basic or emergency needs of a person.
UNITED WAY HAS PARTNERED WITH SIX REGIONAL AGENCY LEADS By Ian MacLennanPublished: May 5th, 2020 1:22pm
The Urgent Needs Fund operated by the local United Way is being expanded to help even more Simcoe Muskoka residents. The pilot phase was launched in October 2019 and wrapped up the the end of last month.
“United Way Simcoe Muskoka has been here for the most vulnerable in our communities for more than 60 years,” says Dale Biddell, CEO of United Way Simcoe Muskoka. “As COVID-19 changes our way of life, there are people looking for assistance who have never had to ask for help before. Our new Urgent Needs Fund is there for those who need it right now, whether that be due to the current pandemic or any other life circumstances.”
To ensure this financial assistance is available to all residents of Simcoe Muskoka, we have partnered with six Regional Agency Leads to help distribute funds to recipients: CONTACT Community Services, Independent Living Services of Simcoe County & Area, Catholic Family Services Simcoe County, Chigamik Community Health Centre, South Georgian Bay Community Health Centre and the District Municipality of Muskoka. In addition, Community Connection 211 Central East is handling the intake, assessment and client impact, as well as the data collection to help better understand local needs.
The Urgent Needs Fund has already assisted hundreds of residents across our region to cover basic needs at a time when they need it most,” says Rosslyn Junke, UWSM Director of Community Impact. “We are delighted to partner with Community Connection 211 Central East, the District of Muskoka and our Regional Agency Leads on this important work to provide vital supports for Simcoe Muskoka residents.”
To apply for assistance, individuals living in Simcoe County should contact 211 Ontario, and people living in Muskoka should contact the District of Muskoka.
