Ontario Trillium Foundation Support
The Ontario Trillium Foundation, an agency of the Government of Ontario, is providing LiveWorkPlay with $62,000 over one year “to enhance the organization’s capacity to secure meaningful employment suited to the interests and abilities of persons with an intellectual disability. Members of service clubs, professional associations and corporations in Ottawa will be recruited to assist with outreach to prospective employers. It is expected that twenty new employers will have agreed to hire a person with an intellectual disability.”
The work begins immediately! With the return of Grace Hudson from maternity leave, the staff team is currently at an all time high of 12 full-time members. Grace returns to the Community Connector team and Alex Darling is now full-time as Volunteer Coordinator.
