“Our mother was an active member of UACS’ seniors group for many years, until she was admitted into a long term facility in Brampton. We’re very pleased and eternally grateful to Ms. Grace and UACS for not forgetting past members. Thanks for arranging visits on a weekly basis – it’s a highlight of her week. Many thanks to Ms. Davene who regularly combs and styles her hair, allowing her to maintain her pride and dignity. May UACS (now Roots Community Services) continue to touch lives and provide this necessary service to our community.”

“I’d like to say how grateful I am for your calls. At times when I am thinking and the mind goes blank, here comes the call from UACS volunteers to let me know someone cares. Thanks.”
