Saint-Antoine 50+ Community Centre is a non-profit social service organization that offers diverse programs and services to all seniors, as well as other adults, in the community. They strive to enhance the quality of life of individuals and community of Little Burgundy, St. Henri, Point St. Charles, Verdun and LaSalle. They strive to foster friendships and create opportunities for members to share with and learn from people coping with similar life experiences.
At Saint-Antoine 50+, they are dedicated to enhancing individuals’ quality of life; to breaking isolation through community integration; to encouraging mutual aid; to fostering independence; and to preventing premature institutionalization.
They strive to help their members develop their self-esteem by enhancing their core values. Those qualities are in each individual and must be promoted in order for them to achieve optimal personal growth. The development of self-esteem must guide daily behaviours within the Centre between those providing services and those receiving services.
Last week, ERA donated 10 computers and 2 laptops to the Saint-Antoine 50+ Community Centre in Montreal. These devices will be used in their computer lab where they hold computing classes for the seniors. Having updated computers with be a major help. The seniors will advance their skills in windows 10, an updated software installed on these devices.
