Announcing - Inclusion Advocacy SENB - 2023 Recipient of, New Brunswick Children’s Foundation Grant, in Support of Youth with IDD.
Inclusion Advocacy SENB (IA SENB), recently received a grant from the New Brunswick Children’s Foundation (NBCF).
Thanks to this grant, IA SENB is enabled to enhance their efforts in support of youth with intellectual and developmental
disabilities (IDD), (some of the more vulnerable members of our community), to plan, have hope and opportunities for, better
quality of life and more enhanced futures in their community.
Executive Director, Connie Melanson-Savoy is pleased to announce IA SENB, is the successful recipient of a $55,000 grant from NBCF. The funds will contribute to IA SENB’s initiative to establish a robust, core group of trained volunteer facilitators. These facilitators will provide persons-centered futures planning, as well as implement opportunities to support the development/enhancement of foundational and transferable skills for youth with IDD, to assist these youth in better preparing for transition to more successful and independent adult living in their community. This achievement is yet another valuable collaboration, and an affirming illustration of what progress can be made when we combine our resources and work together. IA SENB is excited to get this initiative moving forward and is very grateful for the New Brunswick Children’s Foundation’s grant program.
