Who is SSN and why do we exist?

The Solution – RISE
RISE (Reducing Isolation and Social Exclusion) is an innovative on-line program supporting the health and well-being of vulnerable seniors, keeping them informed and socially engaged during the COVID-19 pandemic. The RISE project helps to improve the health, security and well-being of seniors and increase their knowledge of public programs and services they can access.

“I live on my own and am 83 years old. This program has enabled me to remain active and something I look forward to every morning. Without this program, pandemic would have given me depression. I feel much strong and supple. Moreover, I drive for shopping and go on small errands in Brampton. Needless to say, it is so difficult to see doctor these days. I needed this program to remain active and resilient during difficult times.” – Client Testimonial
