Family Experience Program
Spending recreation and leisure time as a family can provide many incredible therapeutic benefits, in addition to creating family memories that will last a lifetime!
Many of the families we work with may struggle to access family recreation and leisure opportunities, and often face a number of barriers in doing so. Our Family experience program helps to remove the barriers to these opportunities, so that the families we work with can spend more quality time together!
Youth Holiday Celebration Fund
The Holidays can be a particularly lonely time for our youth who are living independently, particularly those who are not connected to family. Often, they don’t have the opportunity celebrate with family, or have a special holiday meal.
Our Youth Holiday Celebration Fund provides our youth with a special holiday celebration, including a hot meal and holiday stocking, and the opportunity to gather together with each other and some of our staff – helping to make the holidays a little extra special for our youth!
