Our ‘Building Abilities for Life’ Campaign
The need for life-changing therapies grows every year. Because of the increasing need, some children have to wait, falling further behind.
Support of our ‘Building Abilities for Life’ campaign helps ensure kids get the treatment and support they need that will impact the rest of their lives. We believe all children in our communities should have the opportunity to be their best. With your help, this is possible.
This campaign is important because we know the earlier a child can receive treatment, the more likely it is they can reach their full potential. This investment carries forward into adulthood, where having these improved skills will continue to provide a positive impact on their quality of life.
In 2021/2022 our programs supported 5,588 kids to receive services including speech & language, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy. Currently, we have 2,894 children on our waiting list for therapy with an average wait time of 18-24 months.
As we continue to serve more and more children in our region, the impact of these funds is life-changing for kids in our communities.
Five Counties continues to raise funds so more kids and their families can receive services in-person, by phone or virtually. This ensures children have access to help when they need help the most.
As a donor, you are part of the solution for kids and families to get the early intervention they need that is key to building their abilities for life.
