Moose Jaw Families for Change recently celebrated their one year anniversary of operating the Kinsmen Café on South Hill.

And now, they have even more reason to celebrate, thanks to a significant grant from the Enabling Accessibility Fund. 

"There are actually two sets of doors to come into our location," explains Community Coordinator Katie Bookout, "so if some people with mobility challenges were trying to get in on their own, it could be a bit of an issue to get through those doors."

The renovations are set to begin soon with Bookout hoping that they will make the facility even more welcoming to the community.

"We pride ourselves on the fact that it is just a one-level café: no stairs or uneven flooring. But just being able to offer a wheelchair accessible door for both the washroom and main entrance will make the café even more accessible."

She hopes that more and more organizations around the city will be inspired to take the baton and make their locations accessible to people of all abilities.

"There are a lot of different ways that business can help create a more accessible environment...Even just one simple thing could be placing a wheelchair ramp in front of your business if the ground outside is a bit uneven."

Moose Jaw Families for Change is also sharing further information on the Enabling Accessibility Fund on their social media pages so that other organizations can potentially apply.
