This is an exciting time in our chapter as we build new relationships and commence our community outreach programs. Building on our strong foundation, the Board of Directors is providing the leadership that will focus our organization on client driven, results oriented programs. It will be a priority for us to take important small steps as we put the building blocks in place for the development of a sustainable organization. The future is bright and full of opportunities! We need your help as we grow to serve you. Individual, corporate, governmental and community support for this organization is vital.
Your input and feedback on community needs to support individuals with learning disabilities will help us to tailor our programs and services for you.
We enter 2021 with excitement and enthusiasm! Thanks to the North East Ontario United Way/Centraide funding and other supporters, we are able to offer quality programs and services consistent with our mission statement:
“To support all individuals with learning disabilities in reaching their full potential, within a community that values their unique contributions and abilities.”
United Way/Centraide provides funding for our three main program areas:
- Our Core Business: Community support through our community resource facilitator position.
- Our Community Outreach Program: Delivered through our partnerships with school boards and
community agencies to increase awareness and understanding.
- Our Coaching Program: In partnership with the English Faculty of Education, Laurentian University and our
Assistive Technology Program offering training on software ie: Read&Write for Google Chrome.
We continue to remain focused with a small but progressive organization which operates on our three guiding principles: synergy of partnerships, the multiplier effect for funding and effort, and institutionalizing our mission through existing organizations and community agencies.
The future of this organization and those individuals with learning disabilities is bright! With the guidance of our Board of Directors and community support, we will continue to develop and expand our programs and services, to meet the needs of those we serve.
