Mother Nature is here to wrap her arms around you with warmth! The severe weather has alerted us to the importance of preparing for unexpected emergencies, like having a telephone that works when the power is out.
At SOSWS, we are here to wrap our arms around you with health and wellness programs and services. Take control of your physical and mental health and prevent potential difficulties and complications. For instance, do you need dental care but donít have coverage? Now is a good time to check out what we have to offer.
Come join us for our Annual General Meeting on June 26, 2014. Find out what we have accomplished in the previous fiscal year. Look ahead to October 17, 2014 and mark your calendar for our Annual Walk-a-Thon. We will walk in the mall!

Dear Community Members and Partners:
It is with great pleasure that we write this letter of appreciation and congratulations to you, our community members and partners. We are thrilled to celebrate our 5th Anniversary this November, 2014 and we could not do so without your support.
Over the past 5 years, we sought input from Mississauga's older adults to respond to their needs and interests. In doing so, we secured a variety of partnerships with community service providers and granting organizations to fund the wide variety of programs and services.
As you browse through this keepsake celebration booklet, take a trip down memory lane and recall the fond memories over the years, of our community service providers, members and Mississauga's older adults.
Thank you and congratulations to each and every one of you, for your role in making Square One Seniors Wellness Services a success. We look forward to your continued input in how we can continue to best serve you over the next 5 years.
Esther Williams, President
Laurie Docimo, Resource Development Manager
