Our Community–Based Special Projects are financed through donations and fundraising. Nominal fees are charged to cover registration and operating costs.

President's Message

Rain, Rain, go away …. it has certainly been one of the soggiest spring seasons in some time. Hopefully, all this precipitation will be finished by the time we roll out the carpet for the 7th summer of Camp Kaleidoscope. The popularity of the Camp continues to grow. We are doing our best to ensure all the children and their families are able to participate. Board members, Staff and some family members have been working hard to generate much needed funds for this year's camp. I am truly grateful for this support.

We have recently had some previous support reduced or eliminated. We now find ourselves at a crossroads where we need to find more sustainable funding to ensure we can continue to provide the Camp as well as other services such as Saturday Fun Club, Family Fun Night and Typical Teens. There are a number of fun events that we offer that support our charity. My wife and I attended the Inner Wheel Gala in support of Children at Risk on May 5th. It was a very fun evening with good food, great entertainment and even a belly dancer. We had a beautiful day on this past Sunday for our fundraiser “Walkin’ & Rockin’ for Risk” Fundraising Walk – a fun day was had by all those who came out!

The Ottawa Autism Community Annual Family Picnic will be held on Sunday, June 11, 2017. It is a great day for the whole family and we will be drawing for the Annual Spring Raffle. Don't forget to get your tickets!

We appreciate all the support we receive, but we need these fundraisers to have greater participation to ensure we are raising maximum amounts for Camp and other Programs. We would love more feedback from families on ideas or initiatives for supporting the programs offered by Children at Risk.

We are here for all of you, to support you and your children. The more you support us, the more we can give back. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is on June 7th. We hope to have a strong turnout at the AGM. Keep Dry!

Mark Lalonde,
