Sunbeam Community & Developmental Services received a $125,000 (Resilient Communities Fund) grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation over a span of 9 months to rebuild and recover from the impacts of COVID-19.
Every year for the past 5 years, the Raymond Dietrich Memorial BBQ has held a fundraising event for local services that support those with disabilities. Over this past summer, they collected $14,000 in support of the renovations to our new dental clinic. We wish to thank everyone that’s been involved for their hard work and generosity!
It’s been an amazing 65-year journey since Pieter and Johanna Vos welcomed their first child with developmental disabilities into their home. Fast forward to today where through their efforts, Sunbeam now has helped more than 14,000 individuals and their families.
Atreo Cares started a campaign where they would match and contribute $1 for every share of their social media post promoting Sunbeams services. Over the course of 1 month, they were able to raise $1030 to help support SDRC and Sunbeams much needed respite programs!
We have reached a time where reciting land acknowledgements, and wearing orange shirts are helpful reminders for us, but not sufficient action towards reconciliation. What I would encourage each of you to do is to dedicate some time to learning from Indigenous people about their history, their struggle, their successes, and their desires for how we all move forward together.
It was November 9th, 1956 when Pieter and Johanna Vos first welcomed a child with a developmental disability into their family home. Learn about the Vos family and the dedication they showed to our community…
