Our vision is a world built on principles of inclusion and compassion; a world where all people recognize the benefits of building systems which foster a stronger sense of connectedness and inclusion; a world where people with disabilities and their families, can participate fully and make valuable contributions which enrich our community.
Your donation supports people living with disabilities and their families on the North Shore!
Medication isn't always the answer.
help us get the mobile snoezelen® room on the road!
We have launched a capital campaign to create Canada’s first mobile multi-sensory environment: a Mobile Snoezelen® Room.
Multi-sensory environments are safe and relaxing spaces, designed to stimulate the senses. Appropriate for all ages and abilities, these environments can be customized with a multi-sensory or single-sensory focus, depending on the user.
We want a Snoezelen® Room on wheels to enable us to deliver multi-sensory experiences and therapies to individuals in the Lower Mainland who may not be able to make it to a multi-sensory room at a fixed location. Instead of people coming to us, we’ll bring sensory experiences to them, for individual therapy, community programming, and more.
