Ontario Trillium Foundation Recognition Event
Markham: The South Asian Autism Awareness Centre (SAAAC), initiated in 2008, that has benefited from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, held a meeting to say thanks to the Foundation. SAAAC received a grant of $90,000 over two years to enhance its capacity to serve families in the York Region.
Executive Director of SAAAC, Geetha Moorthy, was elated to announce partnering with the OTF as it has allowed for the hiring of a Client Support Worker (CSW) whose goal is to provide intervention for South Asian parents impacted by ASD in York Region. The event was attended by Michael Chan, MPP for Markham-Unionville, Mayor Frank Scarpitti, Savi Singh, the chair for Simcoe-York OTF’s grant review team, and Councillor Logan Kanapathi. Later, a dance fundraiser, Bhar-A-thon, was held.
