Inclusion has a new home!
Reach is excited to share this important evening of disability learning and advocacy, and share our recreation model of integration training with the community of Regent Park. Reach (formerly Reach for the Rainbow) announces their grand opening on Tuesday, January 16 to the Regent Park community. It will be the first chance to see Reach’s new location and hear about exciting upcoming initiatives in recreation and sport, all while in support of families with children with disabilities and the program partners who deliver these inclusive opportunities.
“Much like the informed design of our new neighbourhood”, said Reach Executive Director Dawn MacDonald, “Reach has spent the last 30 years designing and delivering a recreation inclusion model that is centered around family and community.” Reach’s mandate is that every child and youth, regardless of ability, should have full and equal access to quality inclusive recreation, sport and art programs within their own community. On January 16th, a passionate group of recreational community leaders, families and supporters of inclusion opportunities for children with disabilities will come together to celebrate just that!
