St.Amant Foundation is a registered charity that raises money to support services operated through St.Amant. Although St.Amant is a government-funded agency, many critical areas are not funded.

Some areas include:

  • social and recreational activities that widen social networks, eliminate isolation and loneliness, improve self-esteem and encourage confidence
  • assistive technology and adaptive devices that enable people to increase their independence and participation in life
  • quality living environments that are accessible, welcoming places to live in

Since it began operating in 1989, the Foundation has contributed millions of dollars towards client services, research, renovations and programming.

The Foundation is vital to the future of St.Amant, and essential to the delivery of quality service to Manitobans with developmental disabilities.
