“Five years ago, we uprooted our lives in Mississauga and moved to the Cornwall area after learning about Beyond 21’s program offerings. Like many families, finding adequate support for adults who have a developmental disability is a daunting task and Beyond 21 is one of very few organizations of its kind in Ontario. They provide a wide range of program areas that enrich social relationships, foster physical health, and promote self-confidence — all areas that our daughter Katrina has hugely benefited from.”
“I volunteer with Beyond 21 because I know that small gestures make a big difference. I began volunteering at several events this year and saw first-hand how fundraisers directly benefit the organization’s program and its participants. Working closely with the staff and seeing their passion for the cause has been incredibly inspiring. I encourage everyone to reach out to them and see how you can help!”
“Giving back to our community has always been a priority for my wife and I. As a retired superintendent of the Upper Canada District School Board, I saw first-hand the difficulties families faced when their child with a developmental disability aged out of the traditional school system.
For over ten years, we have supported Beyond 21 because of the positive impact the organization makes on the adults they serve and the pressure it takes off the families who so desperately need it.
We love seeing the progress the organization is making and knowing that we help play a role in its success.”
“Alyson has been part of Beyond 21 since its beginning (maybe shy of a few months). The program keeps her active, healthy and therefore happy. She will not miss a day at Beyond 21 unless it is closed. Thank you to the donors, leaders and in-house chef for making the program so enjoyable!”
