Your Donation In Action!

The core funding that Kindale receives from Community Living BC simply does not cover the costs of all the amenities and services that Kindale provides to persons with developmental and other disabilities.  Money provided by donors is used to supplement and enrich the quality of life of the people we serve in a number of areas including:

Basic Necessities
The per diem funding Kindale receives for those in residential homes has not increased in almost 20 years and does not cover – or fully cover - many basic items and necessities including:

  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Personal Hygiene products
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Furniture
  • Non Prescription medicines
  • Vitamins 

Community Inclusion Activities
People with disabilities, like all citizens, desire to live a rich and inclusive life.  This means being able to participate in activities that most of us take for granted such as:

  • Using recreational facilities such as swimming pools, gyms and arena
  • Going to concerts, movies and sporting events
  • Going on outings in the community
  • Participating in outdoor and wilderness activities such as hiking, kayaking and skiing 

Most people with disabilities live on low, fixed disability pensions and simply cannot afford the admission or travel costs to participate in these activities.  Your donation helps make this possible.
