Giving Tuesday Waterloo Region


Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region

Since 1980, Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region has worked side-by-side with families and the community to promote inclusion and serve individuals with developmental and physical disabilities. We believe in the importance of building community for all and work to create lasting change through supporting the growth and development of the environments we all share – schools, neighbourhoods, cultural groups, work places, etc. This belief lead to the creation of our Community Development Team which connects the individuals and families we support with each other and the broader community. Through collaborative partnerships with local neighbourhood associations, community partners and family groups, the Community Development Team has developed, implemented and joined ongoing events and gatherings, helping create connections and build social capital. Rather than a one-to-one approach, we work to better the community as whole where the impact reaches both the group and each individual. Our Giving Tuesday fundraising efforts will directly support community-building efforts to the benefit of all.
