Creditaid’s Brian Denysuik recently co-chaired St. Amant’s 2nd Annual Party – Camp for 100. St. Amant is the largest provider of community living services in Manitoba, supporting individuals and their families with residential options, family care, and outreach services, as well as operating a growing program for pre-school and school-aged children living with Autism.
Creditaid is proud to support various community initiatives and is privileged to have been a long time supporter of St. Amant, a comprehensive resource for Manitobans with developmental disabilities and autism.
Creditaid CEO Brian Denysuik, recently chaired the inaugural St. Amant Party, and was honoured to be among other individuals and organizations who so graciously donated their time and resources for the cause.
This is the 3rd annual Salsa Festival in Winnipeg and it’s sure to include something for everyone! Presented by 2015 Bachata Cabaret World Champions Harold Rancano and Regan Hirose, along with the RHR Latin Dance Company, the festival features workshops, performances, competitions, and night life parties with world renowned artists.
As credit counsellors, we have the skills and experience to aid this wonderful charity by providing budget strategies to new Habitat homeowners to help them prepare for home ownership and budget effectively for a lifetime of financial success.
The financial education they receive helps to instill a sense of accountability and pride in their new home ownership status.
We are happy to be part of the Habitat for Humanity family, and seeing videos like this one makes us even bigger fans!
We were welcomed with open arms by Principal Rod Fisher and his staff. Keith Macpherson, Carla D’Andreamatteo, and Creditaid’s President Brian Denysuik, are really enjoying the opportunity to deliver some great programs. Creditaid’s Financial Wellness piece generated lots of interesting conversation.
Financial wellbeing impacts one’s overall health, and can affect relationships with family, friends and co-workers. More employers are beginning to realize that being under financial stress can significantly impact the quality of an employee’s daily work. We were happy to be selected by the Manitoba Teachers’ Society as responsible for the Financial Literacy portion of their wellness program.
The Financial Literacy workshops and resources provide information to help individuals deal with financial stress and limit the effects it may have on their life. Topics include but are not limited to:
• Identity Theft
• Dealing with Financial Stress
• Budgeting Made Easy
• Talking Money with Your Kids
We have been helping Manitobans be debt free since 1992 and with programs like these, we can help even more. These valued individuals are teaching our children, and we trust that the more knowledge they have, the more they will pass along.
This is the 2nd annual Salsa Festival in Winnipeg and it’s sure to include something for everyone! Hosted by Cubanisimo, a Winnipeg dance company dedicated to the preservation of Cuban heritage and to the promotion of the joy of Latin Dance, Salsa Fest is a great way to learn about a dancing style that has become so popular in recent years.
Led by company directors Harold Rancano and Regan Hirose, Cubanisimo has performed and competed in dance events throughout North America, most notably the 2014 World Latin Dance Cup in Miami, Florida. Harold and Regan are placed 6th in the world in the Bachata Cabaret Division and amongst the top 10 in Salsa.
Habitat for Humanity Winnipeg was incorporated in 1987 with the vision of helping to eliminate poverty housing in Winnipeg. Today, by mobilizing volunteers and community partners like Creditaid, Habitat for Humanity Manitoba works with people from all walks of life to build safe, decent, affordable housing for purchase by low-income working families.
At Creditaid, we have the expertise to support this wonderful charity by providing budget strategies to new Habitat homeowners that will help them prepare for home ownership. Our services are provided to approximately 25 Habitat families per year throughout the province of Manitoba. The financial education they receive helps to instill a sense of accountability and pride in their new home ownership status.
The meetings between Creditaid and the new home owners are private and confidential, and are also a mandatory requirement of all new Habitat families. The families use the advice and guidance provided by Creditaid in all aspects of their lives – not only those related to home ownership. The families are left with the skills necessary to budget effectively and manage their debt responsibly for a lifetime.
We are happy to be part of the Habitat for Humanity family and hope to continue helping Habitat families long into the future.
Longtime readers of our blog will undoubtedly recall our work with the St. Amant Centre.
We are incredibly honoured to work with the dedicated members of the St. Amant and Winnipeg communities who have come together over the years to lend their support to this extremely worthy cause, which acts as a resource for Manitobans with developmental disabilities and autism.
On September 27th, Creditaid teamed with a number of local businesses, including title sponsor National Bank, to present the St. Amant Free the Spirit Festival. Our staff were on hand and ran the bean bag toss for St. Amant residents and the general attending public. Both our crew and the participants had a great time at our booth.
The management of Creditaid would like to take this opportunity to thank its staff and their families for helping out at this event. Together, we raised over $175,000 for the Centre.
Congratulations to everyone – your hard work is showing off and the St. Amant Centre is the beneficiary of your dedication.
We are very excited for the Free The Spirit Festival happening this Saturday, September 27th at St. Amant. This is a great event that celebrates the value of people with developmental disabilities and autism. We invite all of our friends, staff and the whole community to join us on that day as we participate in the fundraising walk and have fun at the many activities we have planned for the day. There will be a BBQ, games, music and a petting zoo – activities for the whole family!
