OBTAINING BENEFITS FOR A SINGLE MOTHER IN A TIME OF CRISIS
“In sharp contrast to the corporate legal world in which I work every day, as a Storefront volunteer I see people in desperate need of the most basic legal information.
I was grateful to have the opportunity this year to assist a young single mother who had immigrated to Canada from China to make a better life for her son. She was receiving government assistance under a job training program when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. We were able to ensure that welfare would take the place of the job training payments during her period of treatment and convalescence.
My thoughts go with her for a speedy recovery.”
Catherine, volunteer Storefront advisor
