Sandra lives in the Brockville area and works downtown, where she observes people from all walks of life. She sees first hand how friendships, neighbourhood connections and safe affordable housing can improve a person's quality of life. As a support worker through Brockville & District Association for Community Involvement (BDACI) years ago, Sandra had the opportunity to support several people with disabilities. Through these experiences, she learned the importance of choice and autonomy from the people she supported. When people have a home to call their own and can make decisions about their own lives, Sandra feels they are better able to contribute their own unique talents and perspectives to their communities. She is excited about the role that CILH can play in making home a reality.
