Recognition Quotes

As a parent I know first hand how they labour each day to provide professional care, compassion, understanding and encouragement to all those entrusted to their care. Most of their efforts are unseen yet incredibly valuable to ensure the services and supports that they provide enrich the lives of each one.

They seek countless opportunities to allow their charges to grow and flourish in a safe and supportive community. Many go beyond what is required to add value and dignity to the lives of those living with a developmental or intellectual disability which is the right of all Ontarians.

It is truly fitting that Valentine's Day falls within this week of Appreciation as these outstanding organizations and devoted front-line staff are the HEART of this sector.

Raksha, thank you for highlighting and acknowledging the tireless efforts of all those who contribute to the Nonprofit Sector. We can never calculate the value their hours of service have added to the lives of their clients and families that are the grateful recipients of their outstanding service and care.

We can only say 'thank you' a small word with a 'huge' impact!
