St.Amant works to improve the quality of life of children and adults with developmental disabilities in Manitoba so that they can fulfill their true potential. Our goal is to provide supports to each individual that enhance choice and quality of life. The St.Amant Foundation has created special funds to help achieve this: the St.Amant Leisure Guide, Personal Items and Equipment, Recreational Activities and Education and Technology.
Through these funds a grand total of $175,000 in funding will enhance the quality of life of the individuals we support, help them build social networks, increase their skills and have fun!
“We know that families and individuals can find it difficult to participate in leisure and recreation activities within the community. Yet we also know that all people need social connection and recreation. This program should make a big difference,” says John Leggat, President & CEO of St.Amant.
The St.Amant Leisure Guide, a pilot program, received seed funding of $25,000 from The Winnipeg Foundation to help people with developmental disabilities get out and get active.
