With just 🖐 days left until #BlockPartyWR, here are five facts about Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region:
1️⃣ EAFWR has been serving people with developmental and physical disabilities and their families for over 35 years.
2️⃣ EAFWR was founded by a group of parents of children with developmental disabilities as a way to build friendship and nurture community in Waterloo Region
3️⃣ We’re a proud supporter of the Kitchener Waterloo Library of Things (KW LoT), a lending library of infrequently used items, from tools and equipment to cake pop makers, it also provides inclusive employment for those who face barriers to employment.
4️⃣ From inclusion to understanding conflict and communication, EAFWR offers training workshops for staff and those we serve as well as the wider community.
5️⃣ We support both children and adults and have a wide range of programs, from our Summer Program to Respite Services where families and caregivers can catch their breath.
All proceeds from #BlockPartyWR will go to EAFWR.
