This funding will be used to purchase iPads and protective cases, communications software, video teleconferencing equipment, upgrade our present server and develop a fully accessible website.

The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) was established in 1982 to direct portions of the profits from Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) towards social programs in Ontario. Through grant programs, the Ontario Trillium Foundation and Ontario Lottery and Gaming work together to promote the important role that arts, culture, recreation, sports, the environment and social services play in the creation of healthy, sustainable and caring communities in Ontario.
The purpose of OTF is to make life better for people across Ontario by generating revenue provincially and economic and social benefits locally.
A very special thank you to the Ontario Trillium Foundation! Due to this grant approval we expect to make a significant difference in our community and in the lives of the people who receive service.
