The Salvation Army Oshawa Community and Family Services recently received an Accessibility Improvement Award from the city of Oshawa. This award was granted in recognition of the proactive approach taken by The Salvation Army’s Community and Family Services in making improvements to their facility at 45 King St. E. in downtown Oshawa. These improvements, which included installation of an elevator and expansion of washrooms, have made their facility, especially the food bank, much more accessible to members of the community that have a physical disability. A portion of this improvement was provided through the generous support of the Federal Government’s Homelessness Partnership Initiative.
