CARING FOR FAMILIES

Our gifts for Mission & Service support work with parents and children on the autism spectrum, like Footprints 4 Autism. With programs located in Pickering and Whitby, Ontario, Footprints strives to provide respite care to as many as possible.

Having a child diagnosed with autism can be one of the most stressful situations a parent faces. Both the child and parent must learn together how to identify, prepare for, and manage the variety of behaviours that make up the autism spectrum. These might include impaired cognition and communication, social deficits, frequent tantrums, and other challenging behaviours that often lead to physical and emotional exhaustion for all involved. Faced with such overwhelming stress and barriers, many parents of children with autism find themselves unable to cope. Respite care can help ease some of the burden on these families, ensuring that, for a few hours each month, they can enjoy a short but much-needed break from the 24/7 care these children require. The respite also allows parents to pay extra attention to their other children, spend some time together, run errands, or just have some down time.

Many children affected by autism spend several hours a week in therapy classes and often do not have a lot of time for social play and to just be. Under the guidance of trained volunteers who are supervised by a trained program consultant, Footprints offers participants social interaction with others in a safe and happy environment.

Your gifts to Mission & Service make respite care for parents and recreational play for children on the autism spectrum possible.

If Mission & Service giving is already a regular part of your life, thank you so much! If you have not given, please join me in making Mission & Service giving a regular part of your life of faith. Loving our neighbour is at the heart of our Mission & Service.

INTO THE WOODS Jr
April 24th -26th at 7pm
West Ridge School

An adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's and James Lapine's fairytale comes to life with West Ridge School's production of Into the Woods JR. Students bring back all of your favourite childhood characters from classic fairytales, as you are joined by the likes of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch. Enter into a lyrical retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables. 
The musical focuses on the Baker and his wife, who hope to have a child; Cinderella who wishes to go to the King's festival; and Jack and his cow Milky White.  The characters stories weave among one another as the Baker and his wife embark on a journey to break the witch's curse. 
West Ridge's Into the Woods Jr brings you singing, dancing, laughs and thrills. Director Kerrie Lutz describes the musical as “an energetic and highly entertaining performance delivered by amazingly talented students.”
Tickets can be purchased through the main office of West Ridge School at a cost of $10.
