Welcome to Children At Risk Online

Our Mission

Provide services and programs to families of children diagnosed within the Autism Spectrum Disorders to develop their child's behavioural, communications and social skills, and to advocate for their ongoing needs.

Our Activities

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

President's Message

Wow, it's amazing how time flies. It seemed like summer was just ending and now we have the holiday season upon us. It has been a busy fall season for CAR. We had another successful "Celebrity-Carved Pumpkin Contest" in October. We have been busy with both the SENS 50/50 and the Ottawa 67's 50/50 ticket sales. Through The King’s Sons and Daughters Ottawa Autism Circle, Children at Risk also benefitted from the Brunch for Autism and a number of other ongoing events which support our charity.

We are definitely thrilled to be one of 2 Charities invited to participate in this Inaugural Ottawa New Year’s Eve Charity Ball presented by Destiny’s Way! This will surely be an entertaining evening and should not be missed. The other fundraiser fast approaching is our 10th annual Rollin' for Risk Bowl-A-Thon in January. Our goal is to fill all 30 lanes this year, so dust off your bowling shoes, tune up your arms - and get a team together for this very enjoyable family event!

Finally, as I look back on the Year 2015, I want to say a heartfelt thank you to all the Volunteers! These Unsung Heroes give their time and effort to participate in the Children at Risk fundraisers and events to help our charity. Without them, we could not provide the services such as Family Fun Night, Saturday Fun Club, Typical Teens, Social Skill Groups, Sibling Workshops and, of course, Camp Kaleidoscope!

Wishing everyone Happy Holidays and a great start to 2016!

Mark Lalonde,

Board President
