2019 Charity: Community Living Huntsville

Community Living Huntsville supports, serves and advocates for approximately 200 children and adults who live with a label of intellectual disability and their families in North Muskoka.

All of our supports for approximately 200 children and adults are based on helping people have a good life, as citizens included in all aspects of our community, the same expectation as you and I. A few ways we do this is by helping people get jobs, or to become volunteers, or connect with clubs or groups.

We help people learn and understand their rights.

The education, awareness and advocacy work of Community Living Huntsville has led to over 100 local businesses and organizations to connect with people, who live with a label of intellectual disability to meaningfully live, work, learn and play in our community.

We need everyone to recognize that people with intellectual disabilities have gifts, talents, abilities and strengths to contribute. We need employers to consider people with intellectual disabilities as viable candidates for jobs.

We need people to extend invitations and welcome people with intellectual disabilities to have presence in ordinary community places, participating as ordinary citizens, allowing people to get to know each other so relationships can develop.

We believe that Community Living Huntsville, along with the Huntsville community can do better to welcome people who live with a label of intellectual disability to be included, valued, contributing members in all facets of community life ensuring that Huntsville is a stronger, richer, more vibrant community.

Community Living Huntsville hosts 2 Celebrating Inclusion Tours a month. Please visit our website, www.clhuntsville.ca for more information, and let us know if you can join us to learn more about our work!

It has been a pleasure to support Community Living Huntsville for the last 2 years and we look forward to doing so again for the third year!

2016 Charity: Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity Ontario Gateway North is a non-profit organization working to break the cycle of poverty by building homes and promoting affordable homeownership, through the mobilization of volunteers and community partners.
We work with people from all walks of life as we build simple, decent and affordable homes through volunteer labour, efficient management and donations of money and materials. Homes are sold to partner families at no profit – they are financed with affordable, no interest mortgages, geared to the families’ financial circumstance.
Habitat Restores sell new and gently used household and building products, with ReStore sales helping to cover administrative costs of the affiliate. This ensures donated dollars go directly to building more homes in each community in the region.

HGHOGN has helped Huntsville families realize the social and economic benefits of affordable homeownership in 2003, 2005, 2009, and 2012. The organization is excited to once again put shovels in the ground for 2016 in a community-wide effort to offer families a “hand up.” Join us, as we ramp-up our operations in Huntsville and the entire Gateway North region!
