Community Living Oakville is a $9M non-profit organization that helps people with developmental disabilities find employment and housing.
I was very, very blessed to share my heart with their management team.
Working for a non-profit company generally means long hours with mediocre pay.
I took a few pictures while I was wandering around their office that you will see below.
Oakville Honda allows me to speak for free for non-profit organizations in the Toronto area as a way to serve the community and earn your car business.
If you are interested in having me speak at your organization, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you or anyone you know is thinking of purchasing a new or used car, I would love to be of service to them.
Community Living Oakville has an illustrious 55 year history as a non-profit charitable corporation.
Since its origins as The Oakville and District Association for Retarded Children, they have grown to become a $9,000,000 enterprise providing residential programs and services to nearly 60 adults and children in 12 residences, and another 60 people in Supported Independent Living houses and apartments.
In addition, they support 54 people at Speers Place Industries, 89 people in Alternative Day Programs, and 85 people in Community Programs.
Their agency is guided by their mission that encourages and supports full community participation while providing quality services, supports and opportunities enabling people with developmental disabilities to live active, rewarding and fulfilling lives.
Community inclusion remains elusive to many. Their goal is full community participation for anyone with a developmental disability.
I was brought up in a family of volunteers and I love volunteering my time to serve others.
If you have even a little bit of extra time that you can devote to serving and helping those with developmental disabilities, please consider investing some of that time with them.
There are a number of ways you can support the mission and ideals of their organization and people in your community:
