Gifts of Health Wish List
This holiday, you can play a crucial role in ensuring that kids with disabilities in Peel, Dufferin and Halton region receive the life-changing gift of health they need to reach for their dreams. By selecting one of our three gifts of health, you will help make a lasting impression in the lives of children like Faith, Victoria and Issa through the transformative power of ErinoakKids treatment and therapy services and supports.
ErinoakKids respite program provides vital periods of respite for parents and primary caregivers of children with Autism and complex medical care needs, a much needed break from around the clock caregiving. ErinoakKids trained staff work closely with these children to help them develop new skills and independence in everyday activities. Staff encourage social interaction among children with the most complex medical needs, who are often isolated because of their health condition. Children participating in our respite program build friendships and enjoy fun and exciting activities like swimming, cooking, crafts, games and so much more. They do things all children enjoy, while their parents enjoy precious time for themselves and other children in the family. Help families recharge their batteries with this gift of health.
Hear Faith’s incredible story and see how ErinoakKids Respite Camp is transforming her life, and the life of her parents.
Help children and youth with special needs develop lifelong leisure skills while promoting community interaction through our comprehensive offering of recreation therapy programs like our Independent Living Program (ILP), Drama Therapy, Pump and Swim and the Helping Hands Program. This gift of health can brighten up the New Year for a child at ErinoakKids.
