First Steps Wellness Centre
First Steps Wellness Centre (FSWC) is a non-profit organization. They provide leading edge exercise based therapy to people with spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and Multiple Sclerosis as well as to other neuromuscular disorders such as Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injuries. Programs are custom-designed using the latest research and equipment for exercise based recovery methods.
Their goal is to improve the quality of life of people who have suffered neuro-muscular trauma or who have neuromuscular conditions. Improved overall health, independence, and quality of life are all part of the organizational mission statement. They believe in recognizing potential, not limits.
FSWC sets up programs that exercise the entire body including below the level of injury. Exercise below the level of injury is important because of the body’s ability to bypass the injury or produce new pathways through neuro-plasticity. As the mechanics of neuro-plasticity continue to be studied, FSWC customizes exercise programs that stimulate the body to regrow nerves and to promote neuro-plasticity. The net: people with spinal cord injuries can see functional gains in their conditions. To date, 94% of our clients have been able to make functional gains resulting in increased independence and quality of life.
Les Chouettes de Lorettes
Les Chouettes de Lorette are a Francophone childcare service located in the town of Lorette Mb. They have been in operation as a nursery school program since 1994 and then in 2008 they expanded their services to accommodate an infant program (4), a preschool program (30), and a school age program (30). Most of their clients are from Lorette, however, they also serve various surrounding communities, such as, Ste-Anne, Landmark, and Ile des Chenes
They offer quality care to all children in our center and we thrive on continuing to offer good programming for our children. We strive on assuring that all children accelerate and succeed in their development at their own rhythm and we continuously offer support to promote that. St-Labre 200 will contribute towards their summer programming.
Small Town Kids Daycare Inc
Mom’s working together towards the common goal of opening up a day care in Rosenort, MB. These moms discovered the need when starting to ask around about daycare. After conducting a survey it was very clear that:
- that a good amount of moms had to quit their job as they couldn’t find reliable childcare in town, and
- other moms are commuting to surrounding communities to get their children int childcare.
A building has been secured in the town of Rosenort that will need extensive renovations.
The impact of this project the the town will be that families who have parents who work and live in town, won’t have to commute to a surrounding town to receive reliable childcare and parents commuting to our town can have their children in daycare in the same town they work. Our community is constantly growing. This will also add available jobs to the community.
St-Labre 200 will contribute to this project.
