Client Services Manager
Many changes have occurred at Resourceful Futures regarding the clients we serve. You may not see some familiar faces anymore as we have had a few individuals from our seniors group move on to long-term care. This leaves our agency with openings to bring on new clients that have been waiting without support for a lengthy period. I am currently doing intake interviews for both residential and community access services. I will ensure a posting is sent out through Humi when we get to the point of hiring a new home if applicable so keep your eye out for that.
Even though it is sad to see our client family leave us, we need to remember that they are moving forward, which is good for them. It will be exciting getting to know all the new individuals that will be joining us within the next few months. So, when you see a new person, please reach out and give them the best Resourceful Welcome.

Community Access Program
In behalf of Rakesh P. (Community Access Team Coordinator) and Guien G. (Assistant Team Leader), we are excited to be on board in performing these new roles that are entrusted to us for the best interest and well-being of our clients that we serve. We will continue to be committed, to assist, to train, or in many other ways that we can bring to strengthen our front line staff who are the back bone of our Agency.
We started using Share Vision application, which we encourage you to learn and use this helpful tool to submit your Daily Log Notes and other important documentation and reports. The Daily Expenditure Tracking has been updated and simplified for easy understanding in tracking the flow of our client’s funds. “Thank you Kendra” for your guide and support as we explore and learn more about this program. Share Vision application is new to most of us and we will continue to learn more about the system as we use it every day. Eventually, everything that are in the client’s binder will all be available in Share Vision, it will all be just be a click away. We are excited as Resourceful Futures is heading to adapt digitalizing and paperless system very soon.
The next agenda we are working on are our clients Weekly Activity Planner. Hopefully, clients summer activities will start in May. Keep in mind that your constructive feedback is always welcome.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we transition to a better version of our Community Access Program. We are all in this together and together we can make things happen in a positive way.
Please enjoy the photos from our Day Program activities.
See you around!!!
