Impact Statement
Help create "A community where everyone belongs and participates."

Together with families and the community, KW Habilitation inspires abilities to enrich the lives of children, youth, adults and families.

Volunteers will assist us in our Inclusion Supports program by helping an adult with a developmental disability to engage more with his or her community. This will involve meeting once or twice a week at a library or community event, or for recreation activities, shopping or going out for coffee. Volunteers will help foster community connections and independence, provide friendship and have fun!
