SOS Children's Villages
The goal of this subprogram is to identify young adults at high risk of not completing high school and ensure that they graduate and commence on additional education. The Transition to Adulthood Program provides vulnerable youth with 1:1 support that assists them to develop life skills, independence, find employment or training, and secure housing with the help of our experienced youth workers.
Down Syndrome Research Foundation
The DSRF launched services at the City Centre building in Surrey and are now offering occupational therapy, speech therapy, and one to one reading on three days of the week. They are fully registered for these services serving 25 children, and now have a small wait list which they hope to address in 2018. The children have benefited by having access to support for their communication skills, life skills, and reading ability which will assist with their long term ability to participate in their community.
