October has been an exciting time for us as we participated in this year’s month long virtual Scotiabank Charity Challenge, one of our major annual fundraising events. With the fundraising deadline extended for another couple of weeks, I am inviting you to support me as part of the Eli’s Place Team.
This exciting event is a crucial part of our fundraising efforts focused on realizing Eli’s Place and our vision for a rural residential long term treatment centre for young adults with serious mental illness.
This year, as part of our official Eli’s Place Team, I walked 5 km on October 17th. Yet everyday I continue the journey to make Eli's Place a reality. I hope I can count on your support to help us reach our $60,000 goal. Each step taken brings us closer to opening the doors!
Thank you for your ongoing support of Eli's Place!
For the 160,000 young adults in Ontario grappling with serious mental illness, access to effective treatment is grossly inadequate. The cost in lives lived with debilitating challenges or lost to early death is far too great. The vision of Eli’s Place aims to bring hope. A first-of-its-kind in Canada, Eli’s Place is modelled after a leading rural, residential long-term treatment centre with proven success. Programs that incorporate therapeutic work, specialized care and skills training will offer a path to recovery for people in this underserved age group, giving them the tools to heal and move from simply surviving to living.
