As a young girl, Cynthia created birthday cards with her crayons, markers and pens, adding a personal message taken from the scriptures of the bible. Cynthia became known in her circle, as the "birthday card girl". If it was your birthday and you attended Northview Community Church or were a friend, it was a reason to celebrate, so you received a birthday card from Cynthia.

Loving Life at 100%!

My name is Serena Cole and recently I have been doing lots of things to get more involved in the community.
In March I celebrated my 35th Birthday! I planned a party for which I baked a cake with the placement student, Sarah. I got all dressed up and one of my Passport workers, Michelle, helped me do my hair. I had a big lunch that day and got lots of cool presents and best of all, I got to spend my Birthday with my family and close friends.

Tony Downer: This is MY Life!

Tony Downer has been featured in "This Is My Life" video series, which features People First of Ontario Members talking about their lives and the issues that are important to them - like having a home, a job, or a relationship, and the importance of advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities. Take a look at this wonderful video! Tony says, "please enjoy!"

Earlier this month, on Sunday May 1st, Joe was able to take part in the 3rd annual 5km run for Autism Awareness at Heydenshore Park in Whitby. Personally, Joe was able to raise $105.00 for the event which will support fellow individuals like Joe, living on the Autism Spectrum.  

I DID IT! I have reached my goal of receiving confirmation. I have been working on this goal for 3 years. I am so happy to have accomplished this. I have attended bible study weekly to learn the requirements to achieve this. I am very proud of myself.
