"No Child Should Wait"

Last year 1,710 children and youth with physical and developmental special needs received service at George Jeffrey Children’s Centre, accessing life-changing therapy. 

Demand is rising. Keeping pace is a great challenge.

There are still over 400 children on our wait list needing the vital service and support that George Jeffrey Children’s Centre provides. The wait list will continue to grow as diagnostic services improve and awareness about the importance of early intervention increases throughout our region.

For some of these children having to wait may ultimately be the difference between being able to walk or having to use a walker or wheelchair. For others it may be the difference between being able to talk or being nonverbal. These are just two examples of how children at George Jeffrey Children’s Centre can be helped.

“No Child Should Wait” is an initiative to assist children and their families who are on the wait list. It is bridging the gap of services available to them by providing direct therapy services, consultation, education, and specialized pediatric care. It is connecting them to the Centre’s services sooner.

Your gift today to the “No Child Should Wait” initiative will help change the lives of children with special needs by providing them with the opportunity to receive services that are essential for their development – helping them live to their fullest potential. The impact of your support will range from children having future success in school, to being active members of their communities.

You can help ensure that no child will wait! Your generosity can help change the lives of children with special needs and their families throughout our region.

On behalf of children and their families, thank you.
