A $138,500 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation will help enhance services for clients at Pathways Health Centre for Children will building resources to help teens and their families provide transition services.
The funding will go a long way toward helping young people in preparing for life after high school, said Dave Schaller, manager of family and community services at Pathways.
“Families must learn to navigate new funding systems and resources that change when their child turns 18 and transitions into adult services and an active life in their community”, said Schaller. “This funding over the next two years will allow Pathways to enhance our current Teen Transition Service, develop new community resources, increase the support we can provide to teens and their families and strengthen our connections with our community transition partners. We are very excited and thankful for the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s commitment to supporting young people with disabilities."
