The North Shore Disability Resource Centre has launched a capital campaign to create Canada’s first mobile multi-sensory environment: a Mobile Snoezelen® Room.
Multi-sensory environments are safe and relaxing spaces, designed to stimulate the sense. Appropriate for all ages and abilities, these environments can be customized with a multi-sensory or single-sensory focus, depending on the user. We want a Snoezelen® Room on wheels to enable us to deliver multi-sensory experiences and therapies to individuals in the Lower Mainland who may not be able to make it to a multi-sensory room at a fixed location. Instead of people coming to us, we’ll bring sensory experiences to them, for individual therapy, community programming, and more.
Our vision is to create a true community resource. While a mobile multi-sensory environment will benefit the children and young people with whom we work—the original inspiration for this campaign – we see the benefits extended far deeper into our community. We want to bring this resource to the elderly, children and young adults in schools and day cares, patients and staff in hospitals and care facilities, members of our first-responders community, and corporate employees too!
HOW TO HELP US TODAY
We are relying on the support of individual donors and corporate sponsors to get our Mobile Snoezelen® Room on the road. One in six people in our communities live with disabilities. By supporting this campaign, you demonstrate your commitment to building more inclusive communities where people with all abilities can make valuable contributions.
As the designated charity of the 2019 North Shore Mayors’ Golf Tournament, NSDRC received a generous $50,000 donation to kick-start our Mobile Snoezelen® Room campaign. We have a fundraising target of $170,000 and need your help to raise the rest before the end of the year!
- Tax receipts are provided for all individual donations over $20. If you plan to donate $1,000 or more, please contact Marc at 604.880.4733 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
