reachAbility is Redefining Partnership to Fill Gaps in Service

We are pleased to announce our Form Filling Assistance program. In response to a community need, reachAbility is partnering with the Halifax YMCA and Dalhousie University Pro Bono Students (PBSC) to provide support to those having difficulty filling out important forms. “This is a simple need met by a united response,” says reachAbility CEO Tova Sherman. “The program is for everyone, including those with low literacy.”

The Form Filling Assistance program is free and will occur every Wednesday 9 – 11 a.m. at the Gottingen Street YMCA in the Halifax Boardroom. Assistance will be provided for forms such as criminal record pardons, lease agreements, applications and more.

reachAbility has also recently partnered with:

  • Our Bike 360 program teamed up with Bike Again and the Ecology Action Centre to repair and give away bikes to kids during Switch Halifax: Open Street Sundays in September 2013. Read more here.
  • reachAbility will be providing Disability Awareness Training on October 2013 to cross-sector HR staff in partnership with The Cambridge Suites and
