What is Extend-A-Family?
Extend-A-Family works in the community to facilitate the building of relationships between individuals who have developmental disabilities and other members of the community. We believe that all people belong and that our community is stronger when all members are included. We foster public awareness of the gifts and contributions of people with developmental disabilities.
Extend-A-Family is a not-for-profit, charitable organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of parents of children with developmental disabilities, self advocates and community members. Extend-A-Family is financially supported by the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services, The City of Toronto Community Service Partnerships Program, Service Canada, the Nevada Tickets lottery and other donors.
