The Foundation’s mission is to improve the well-being of CLSC clients in the West Island by funding requests not covered by the public system. The help is extended once first line workers at both CLSC have assessed the requests and confirmed that all other resources have been exhausted.
The Foundation aims to increase the visibility of the physical and mental health services offered by both CLSCs and provide help in the following areas
- Assistance to the elderly or to those facing a loss of autonomy
- Mental health and dependence
- Routine nursing care
- Intellectually challenged children and autism spectrum disorder
- Early childhood 0 to 5 and youth in difficulty
The Foundation is entirely managed by volunteers. The administration fees are therefore minimal with over 95% of the donations distributed to members of the West-Island community.
