There are over 1 million Canadians living today with a developmental disability such as autism spectrum disorder, Asperger syndrome and Down syndrome. There is no cure for a developmental disability – there is only hope – hope provided through an organization like Reena.

Reena serves over 1200 individuals per year through residential and Respite & Enrichment programs and numerous other services that help them reach their potential in a dignified and caring setting.

Reena has been providing Respite & Enrichment Programs for 13 years. These programs receive no government funding and depend completely on community donations for their existence.

Reena runs 15 such programs and with your help we will be able to continue to provide the people we serve with quality programming for years to come.
