Winter Programs moving forward!

Yes...we are continuing to run Winter Programs at the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre at 203 Duffield Street. We are keeping within current public health guidelines. 

The postponement of programs at the Centre remains in effect until further notice.
The team at the Centre will continue to monitor public health guidelines, assess potential impacts, and make any subsequent decisions based on the safety of our members.

We have made an effort to improve our communications through our Website, Facebook, Twitter and in subsequent eBlasts. Keep an eye on our socials and for our eBlasts and Newsletter for on-site and virtual programs. 

Thank you for your continued support of the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre during this challenging time. 

 

 

Our Mission


St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre
Culture Statement
Mission:
"To encourage older adults to improve their quality of life by providing educational, recreational, health and social opportunities."
Fostering a Culture of Caring:
As a community that cares about the people we serve and its mission we recognize that it is important to talk about what we believe. Outlining key points of what we want to be for and to each other gives all of us direction and important marker points that help us understand the culture of caring that we want to intentionally promote here at the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre.
As a result we at the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre:
1. Recognize that our people (members, staff, volunteers, guests) are coming from a variety of different backgrounds and experiences and we intentionally make room for all. 2. Commit to treating each other with kindness and respect. Standing up for others when we see them being mistreated and helping each other when needed. 3. Realize that differences sometimes lead to conflict but as these conflicts take place we will: a. Address our issues and concerns directly with the source in a kind way seeking mutual understanding and respect of differences all the while looking for middle ground. b. Refrain from talking/gossiping with others about our conflicts c. Seek help from staff when we feel advice is needed or the situation requires 3rd party help and/or intervention Our commitment to support and care for each other is at the very heart of our mission and cornerstone of the kind of people we want to be to each other. Just as schools today do not tolerate the mistreatment and bullying of others we too will not allow other members, staff or volunteers to be treated with disrespect. Anyone who is unable to follow the above guidelines will be given the opportunity to correct their behavior but failure to follow through will result in termination of membership.
