DANIELLE LAFLEUR DONATES HER BIRTHDAY TO ABODE RESPITE

Help Danielle raise money to help us open a respite home in our community. This respite home would fill a gap within the community providing out-of-home respite to people living with a developmental disability and their families and caregivers. Furthermore, a respite house could be crucial to the longevity of a family or caregiver’s ability to care for persons living with a developmental disability in their own home. Additionally, a respite house offers families and caregivers a period of respite during crisis.


People of all ages and abilities welcome!


We are committed to providing equal access to this event for all participants. If you require accommodations, alternative formats, dietary considerations or other specific needs, please contact Ashley Lamont at 519-839-4246 or via email [email protected] with your request by close of business, Monday March 18, 2019.

About Danielle

Hi! I'm Danielle, and I'm donating my birthday to help expand and improve supports for adults living with a developmental disability. I have worked with people across the lifespan, with a variety of needs and abilities and I feel a strong desire to support them further, beyond what I can physically provide myself.

Right now, Ontario as a province is struggling to meet the needs of people living with various disabilities. These issues are seen in funding from the government, a lack of services offered which leave families with very few choices when deciding where to seek additional help, and a lack of quality services. A program may look great on paper, but what a company does on a regular basis may not appear as great as it sounded when families are reevaluating and monitoring their loved ones mood, skill level, abilities, and overall quality of life.

My goal is to help bridge this gap, starting with the organization of my choice, Abode Respite. Abode is working to open their first respite house, serving adults of all exceptionalities, in the Windsor-Essex county region. They believe in authenticity, independence, inclusion, integration and acceptance. They see the value in collaboration, family involvement, community connections, and true friendship. They prioritize safety, accountability, and honesty. It is an honour to have the opportunity to support them in expanding and changing lives.
