The John McGivney Children’s Centre is thrilled at the announcement this week by the Ontario government for its investment in children and youth services in Windsor-Essex.
At JMCC, we provide physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and assistive communication and mobility services to approximately 3,000 children and youth each year. JMCC will be receiving $1.41 million towards early intervention programs.
