This year IA Financial Group is donating $500,000 to charities that work with people with disabilities and their communities. Hydrocephalus Canada has been selected as a finalist for the contest.
A donation of $100,000 would support a multi-tiered program that provides direct support and resources to individuals and families impacted by hydrocephalus and spina bifida and extends these services to new communities across Canada.
These services include providing guidance for parents who have received a prenatal diagnosis of one or both conditions, parents with school-aged children with learning disabilities associated with the conditions, and one-on-one support for impacted adults who are looking for resources on topics such as employment, mental health, and financial and digital literacy. Resources include a helpline, peer networking services, a scholarship and bursary program, community outreach, an online resource centre, and more.
HC will ensure that all individuals impacted by the conditions will have access to all the programming available, regardless of location. This will provide individuals in remote locations with the ability to connect with others and gain access to community-specific resources.
