Alice Saddy Association is excited to announce that we have been awarded a seed grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation! The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is an agency of the Government of Ontario, and one of Canada’s leading granting foundations. OTF awarded more than $120 million to some 700 projects last year to build healthy and vibrant communities in Ontario, and we are thrilled to be a part of this!
This seed grant will help us test out new ways to support individuals with developmental disabilities to obtain employment, helping to overcome barriers many face when looking for a job. Our hope is to see people gain the skill and confidence to not only find employment, but to have greater involvement in the community, and find natural, mutually beneficial relationships.
We look forward to the next year to see what we discover and how it can benefit our community for the better!
