2015 was an extraordinary year for FOOTPRINTS 4 Autism. Both sites excelled once again with two Summer Break Camps.
In 2015, The Durham Community provided funding for a pilot program Together We ‘Hang’.
A social program for youth on the Autism Spectrum and their peers. Participants are paired with a volunteer for a social gathering fostering inclusion, acceptance and friendship.
In partnership with the Pickering Library, FOOTPRINTS ran the weekly drop-in program from April to September.
FOOTPRINTS continues to meet targets and goals to increase capacity and maintain a high quality program.
In 2015, 184 people contributed their time and energy to this worthy cause by providing direct support to a child on the Autism Spectrum.
While the goal of FOOTPRINTS is that participating children are “safe, happy and want to return”, its true value is the respite that is enjoyed by other family members.
FOOTPRINTS offers families that priceless commodity of time—and whether the time is spent alone, with a spouse or other children, whether it’s spent resting, or trying to keep up with the other responsibilities in life—it is the rarest kind of time for parents of a child with a disability—time without worry.
