Waterloo, ON – Lutherwood has submitted a grant application to create a smart phone app for members of the community that need information on our children’s mental health, employment or housing services.
WIND Mobile – Canada’s fastest growing wireless carrier – is offering a community grant of $10,000 to one organization or charity to support a new or existing project.
“People use smart phone applications to make life easier - from looking up phone numbers, to reading news, to getting directions,” said Dr. John Colangeli, Chief Executive Officer of Lutherwood. “This grant offers us a really exciting opportunity to give people access to information about our services that will help them find jobs, find affordable housing, and access mental health services, right in the palms of their hands.”
We need your help. A large part of the grant’s evaluation is based on a show of community support through social media. Please show your support for our application through any and all of these means:

"I found my employment advisor to be extremely professional. She took the time to review my resume and cover letter, and during our mock interview, she helped bring out skills that I did not see in myself. I am happy to report that I have been successful in my job search."
