Our flag is at half-mast this week as we mourn the unexpected passing of one of our valued team members. Brenda Emery was a member of our iCAN team, and worked in partnership with licensed child care centres to support children with additional needs. Brenda had been with DCAFS for two years, however is well known in the community for over two decades of working to support individuals with additional needs through our partner Community Living Dufferin. Brenda had a contagious smile, cared deeply for the children and families she worked with, loved curling, gardening and golf when she wasn’t working … and she will be deeply missed. Our warmest thoughts are with her family and close friends at this time.
