Developing a Smart Phone App for Support

Waterloo, ON – Lutherwood has submitted a grant application to create a smart phone app for members of the community that need information on our children’s mental health, employment or housing services.

WIND Mobile – Canada’s fastest growing wireless carrier – is offering a community grant of $10,000 to one organization or charity to support a new or existing project.

“People use smart phone applications to make life easier - from looking up phone numbers, to reading news, to getting directions,” said Dr. John Colangeli, Chief Executive Officer of Lutherwood. “This grant offers us a really exciting opportunity to give people access to information about our services that will help them find jobs, find affordable housing, and access mental health services, right in the palms of their hands.”

We need your help. A large part of the grant’s evaluation is based on a show of community support through social media. Please show your support for our application through any and all of these means:

1. Twitter, please tweet something like the following: “Hi @WINDMobile, Please support @Lutherwood #LWDMobileApp project for the #WINDthanksKW grant. Pls RT #KWawesome”

2. Facebook please visit and “Like” our grant support Page at

3. Email – Send a link to this page to your friends and ask them to support our application.

Thank you for helping us strengthen the lives of people living in our community.

"I volunteered at Lutherwood to help a friend and I fell in love with the organization and its mission. It feels like a big family and that is reflected in our work. I was able to refer friends to our services and they got the help they needed. I see every day how much we make a difference in people's lives and it is a privilege to be part of it."
