Home maintenance services
City Links helps low income seniors to live safely and securely in their own homes. The program provides these clients with basic yard care, snow removal, house cleaning, interior & exterior painting and minor repairs.
Employment preparation & training
City Links provides a safe and supportive work environment where men and women facing employment barriers can receive paid work experience, work skills training and vocational counselling.
Workers spend most of their time doing home maintenance for low-income seniors. The areas of work are housecleaning, yard maintenance, and residential painting. Training is provided and no previous experience is required.
City Links will provide employment preparation services to persons with barriers to employment which will result in their obtaining meaningful and sustainable employment. City Links will also provide home maintenance services to low income and infirm seniors which will ensure they live in a safe and adequately-maintained homes. Both groups of citizens will thereby be in a position of increased self-determination and control over their lives.
This program is jointly funded by the City of Calgary and Family and Community Support Services (FCSS).
