Goal 1: To stabilize and expand SAIL
Last year AIR worked to rebrand and establish a new self-advocacy group. We accomplished this by creating SAIL – Self Advocacy, Inclusion and Learning. It was noted that more management oversight would be needed to stabilize and expand all the great things individuals supported identified they wanted to learn. This year we will focus on stabilizing the individual leadership group and connecting with community resources for educational experiences.
Goal 2: to evaluate and structure AIR membership fees to increase paying membership numbers.
AIR management noted some gaps in the set up of our monthly membership fees and will be working this coming year to close those gaps and increase our paying membership numbers. This increase will assist in bringing new and exciting events and activities to the AIR programs while also updating our current aesthetic and equipment available to paying members. Management will be updating brochures/literature advertising the AIR program while also updating intake processes to ensure clear communication of expectations.
While the cold weather is upon us, we encourage everyone to dress warmly. If individuals need assistance securing warm clothing, footwear, or protective clothing for the elements such as mittens/gloves or toques, to speak with a Team Leader or Supervisor. Please remember that Reach does not have space for donations to be stored, however can help connect with Streets Alive and other resources in the city to acquire items needed to stay warm.
