Summer Holidays

We’d like to let you know that we will be slowing things down just a little over the summer months. Everyone deserves a little down time! The Making Changes office will not be open on Fridays in July and August. If you are trying to reach one of our staff, please know that they will return your phone call or email just as soon as they can.

We would like to wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer!
