Community Living Port Colborne-Wainfleet, Ontario- Port Colborne
Community Living’s goal is to offer free after school programs to youth in Port Colborne by offering a 2 night per week Kids Club. Children from at risk neighbourhoods, in foster care, being raised by grandparents, and those from families of low socio-economic status will be invited to attend. Due to lack of public transportation in the area in the evenings, children will be picked up from their homes and driven to the centre and returned home. The children will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of physical activities such as climbing, basketball, volleyball and many sensory stimulation toys and equipment will be available for children with special needs. The community kitchen will provide the opportunity for participants to get involved in making nutritious snacks. The goal is for 40 children ages 6 to 12 to participate for the 30 week program.
