Agency Update - Covid-19
Following the direction of the Provincial Government Effective January 14, 2021 DSLG has transitioned to a working with precautionary measures model to ensure the safety of the individuals we are supporting and staff. In keeping the safety of our individuals and staff as a top priority, we will transition most staff to working from home to mitigate the risk to all for the duration of the stay at home order. We will re-evaluate the risks throughout this period and extend the time frame if necessary. This means all location doors will be locked and face to face interactions will be limited. If you receive supports from DSLG your coordinator will be in contact with you throughout this period and support you in the safest way. Please know we will still continue to operate and provide services and supports to individuals during this time period as best as possible.
Jays Care Foundation
Developmental Services of Leeds and Grenville (DSLG) is proud to announce that we have been selected by Jays Care Foundation as a partner in the 2022 Community Partners program. DSLG will be running the Challenger Baseball Program as created by Jays Care Foundation and will be implementing the program into our Children's Services Social Skills Building Group this summer.
Jays Care Foundation, the charitable arm of the Toronto Blue Jays, uses baseball as a tool to teach life-skills and create lasting social change for over 35,000 children and youth across Canada. Jays Care proudly works in all ten provinces and three territories running community programs to level the playing field for Canadian kids facing barriers, and has invested over $10 million through Field of Dreams to support the building or refurbishment of more than 100 baseball diamonds and recreation spaces. Since 2020, Jays Care programs have been ambitiously adapted to support Canadian children and families who have been disproportionately impacted by the social effects of COVID-19.
