2011 Partnership Award - Toronto

WoodGreen Community Services

Nominator Comments:

Shaida is recognized for her tireless effort to develop partnerships that have a deep impact on the community, agency staff, organizations, and committees. Shaida empowers others and has the ability to influence and build individuals, organizations and communities to become their best. She is passionate about approaching settlement services from a mobile services model to bridge the service gap by providing services ‘where families are,’ instead of waiting for them to come and ask for help. Her approach has increased clients’ accessibility to services and allows counsellors to provide services to those that are most in need and hard to reach.
