Accessibility Statement

We have undertaken to use our knowledge and understanding of the ways in which different people access the Internet, to develop a web site that is clear and simple for everybody to use.

Validation

We have used XHTML 1.0 and CSS that conforms to specification, as laid out by the W3C because we believe that usability and accessibility must have a solid foundation. If anything on this web site does not validate correctly, please contact the Site Administration, and not the Plone Team.

We have also endeavoured to achieve AA accessibility as measured against version 1.0 of the WCAG. We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective — and although we are sure that we have met them squarely, there may be instances where interpretation may vary.

Success Story

 

Loretta

I was staying with my cousin, her six children and husband and it was crowded.  She saw the Renewal House sign at the hairdresser, so I gave Karen Messina a call.

It felt bad to be older and not have a place of my own; I had a part time job and was under a doctor’s care.  I was not on disability yet.  My knee was acting up badly and it was hard to get around.  Apartments were sky high and it was hard for me to get around to see them.  Driving was stressful for me so I turned my license in.

When I found Renewal House, it was a blessing for me.  I made friends with the other residents.  We had Bible Study and monthly house meetings.  I became more interested in the things that were going on here.

I cooked whatever I wanted once a week.  We all pitched in to do chores and dishes.  We all got along very good.  It was just like another family.

I have four children of my own, twelve grandchildren and became great, great grandmother last August.
