With roots dating back to 1955, Community Living North Halton (CLNH) is a registered nonprofit organi: zation that provides supports and services to more than 550 children and adults with special needs in Georgetown, Milton and Acton. Offering more than 15 programs not funded by the government, the organi- zation relies on community donations and support to serve families in need. Programs such as the Saturday Centres, Summer Camps and After School Respite are especially vital to families in North Halton. These programs provide opportunities for school aged children and youth, with developmental disabilities to develop skills, friend- ships and self awareness in a fun and safe setting. Many of these child and youth focused programs are at capacity and have significant waiting lists and with- out adequate funding, are at risk. Without the support and generosity from the com- munity, many CLNH programs would not exist or con- tinue to grow. Givimg is not about making a donation; it's about making a difference.

Supporting adult learners in north Halton "We often think of literacy as.the ability to read and write with ease. Reading, writing, and numeracy are part of a larger set of essential skills that we use every day at work, at home, and in the community. Lit- eracy includes computer and digital technology skills, oral communication, financial literacy and more." (Metro Toronto Movement for Literacy.) Adult Learning Centre-Literacy North Haiton is a community-based, charitable organization which provides 'adults with local opportunities to improve essential skills for employment, further education, and increased independence. Funded in part by the provincial government as a Literacy and Basic Skills provider and by the United Way Halton and Hamilton, Literacy North Halton is also supported by local spon- sors, community partners, dedicated volunteer tutors and board members, and through generous dona- tions from individuals like you. Literacy North Halton works within our North Halton communities to raise awareness about the growing need in society for higher level literacy levels and es- sential skills through an ongoing outreach program. By working together to encourage life-long learning and essential skills building for all local adults, we hope to contribute to a more educated, employed, and fulfilled community. Literacy is opportunity for life! This #GivingTuesday, donate in support of adult learners in your community.
