“The MSC helped me get into the line of work I enjoy, but also gave me the confidence and mindset that I’m capable of accomplishing greatness.” – David, Employment Services Client
Since 1978, the Multi-Service Centre has been providing much needed employment, literacy, and home support services to those living in Tillsonburg and surrounding area. We support seniors to remain independent in their homes with access to healthy meals through our hot and frozen Meals on Wheels program, transportation services to medical appointments, grocery buddy program, foot care, and more. Many of these services are available at a reduced cost to our clients thanks to our volunteers who generously share their time and talent.
In addition to home support, the MSC provides local businesses and job seekers with resume development, interview training, literacy and computer upgrading, networking opportunities, hiring supports, on-site training, and job grant support through our employment services… all for free. The MSC also provides a literacy program helping individuals learn how to read and write as well as improve numeracy and computer skills.
Last year, the Multi-Service Centre provided hope and a brighter future for over 2,300 individuals living in our community. Many struggled from the pandemic’s effects and we were there to help. We supported them to find meaningful employment, provided friendly visits to seniors coping with loneliness, delivered meals and groceries to the elderly facing day-to-day challenges of accessing healthy food, provided medical appointment transportation, and supported individuals desperately trying to upgrade technology skills to communicate with family and friends online, all following COVID 19 safety protocols.
