Tetra Society (ON) clients with disabilities are struggling to stay safe at home and adapt to life changes caused by COVID-19. 

In an alarming number of cases, individuals with disabilities needing daily support from caregivers (many needing multiple carers per day), were afraid for themselves and their carers, who at no fault of their own were often equipped with little to no protective equipment. 

Additionally, many people with disabilities have weakened immune systems or underlying conditions, making it very dangerous for them to run errands for basic needs like groceries, hygiene products, and medications. 

Tetra (ON) is supporting people with disabilities during COVID-19 in 3 ways:

We have heard our community's call for help. In addition to building custom assistive devices, we have added COVID-19 programs and services with a focus on feeding, protecting, and supporting people with disabilities during the pandemic.

1. FEED:

We will purchase and deliver grocery store gift certificates to people with disabilities. Your gift allows those who are struggling most afford food, hygiene items, and medications from their local grocer.

2. PROTECT:

We will gift people with disabilities and front-line support workers with personal protective equipment so that everybody stays safe. 

3. SUPPORT:

Our team and volunteers are proactively seeking ways to be there for people with disabilities during this time, and we remain grateful for any financial support you can provide.
