This funding supports our Supportive Housing and Outreach Programs for adults with significant physical disabilities, the Assisted Living Program for Seniors at high risk of institutionalization, the Accessibility Resource Centre, and many of the Association’s administrative functions.
Other funding sources include the United Way of Greater Simcoe County, Ontario Trillium Foundation, donations and membership fees, and revenue from sponsorship and fee for service activities, and fundraising initiatives. This funding is used to support a variety of programs sponsored through the Association including Public Education, Accessibility Consultations, Community Development, and Volunteer Services.
