On September 29th, our Jake’s House family gathered to kick off its Our Time to Shine Campaign. Joined by dozens of our supporters, we welcomed to the podium our esteemed guest Minister Monte McNaughton. Joining Minister McNaughton, was Jake’s House CEO Jennifer Joseph, U Sports COO Lisa Beatty, JHCR Residents Paul and Ruth, and Ron Adea.
This celebration re-enforced just how meaningful community partnerships with Jake’s House have become for individuals and families living with ASD, attending our events and programs, and living in our inclusive housing—Jake’s House Community Residences. All of Jake’s House complimentary services are only possible because of the help of such passionate, caring community leaders. Our Time to Shine has officially launched, when we all work together – we have learned, anything is possible.
The Our Time to Shine fund raising goal has been set to raise $3 million over the course of 3 years, while enhancing the spotlight on those who deserve it most, our families and volunteers.
We thank everyone for attending and supporting the empowerment of our autism community.
