Dear Members,

With a warm heart, the Autism Wellness Foundation and I would like to announce we have received a $500 grant from the Caledonia Community Foundation. These funds will support us to facilitate Living Life to the Full; an online course delivered in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association ("CMHA"). I would also like to express my sincerest gratitude and appreciation for the help we have received from all of our sponsors.

The Caledonia Community Foundation awards annual grants through a competitive application and review process. Caledonia Community Foundation (“CCF”) provided a special one-time grant of $500 to Autism Wellness Foundation to support our charitable activities impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The CCF's 2020 COVID-19 GRANT offset costs to adapt/re-design the delivery of our programs and services. 

"Every little bit helps to support our community achieve wellness and contributes to delivering CMHA’s Living Life to the Full online course; 12 hours that can change your life,"

         ~ Janelle Meredith, Autism Wellness Foundation, Executive Director.

 

Autism Wellness Foundation wants to continue to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world.

Living Life to the Full during and post-COVID-19 project is supported by the Government of Canada Emergency Community Support Fund and Community Foundations of Canada.

Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.

Autism Wellness Foundation knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. We know the challenges you face today. Autism is our children, our cousins, our uncles and neighbours and we are their foundation. 

We've put together unique wellness program's that people need. We advocate for those needs by validating real voices and we use nature as the foundation for learning how to foster healthier lives in our community.

Autism Wellness Foundation would also like to thank the CMHA for contributing towards facilitator training fees and materials for our online course participants.

As an organization we faced many challenges in our pursuit of offering positive solutions for our community's approach to managing the negative impacts of Covid-19. 

The CMHA's Living Life to the Full online course meets the needs of our community during these difficult times.

Our non-profit organization is proud to offer this program to our community in partnership with CMHA's generous contribution towards to the costs associated training and delivery of the LLTTF online course.

Sincerely,

Janelle Meredith, 

Executive Director,

Autism Wellness Foundation
