Service transfer of Clarendon Foundation to PACE Independent Living – effective September 1, 2015

We are pleased to announce that we have been asked by the Toronto Central LHIN to work with them on a service transfer that will have PACE taking over responsibility for Clarendon’s two supportive housing sites.  This service transfer will result in the Clarendon Consumers receiving services from PACE and Clarendon Staff becoming part of the PACE organization.  PACE will begin providing services on September 1st, 2015. 

In addition, we are delighted to share that we have a new Director, Support Services, Sallie Morrison, who will provide the senior leadership in overseeing these two supportive housing sites.  Sallie has more than 20 year’s leadership experience in not-for-profit services for people with physical disabilities and for seniors in the province of Ontario.  Most recently, she was the Director of Services including supportive housing for AbleLiving Services (Thrive Group).
