Grand Opening Celebration for Trillium Ontario 150 Grant at MukiBaum!

The MukiBaum Accessibility Centre is pleased to announce an unveiling event for the substantial renovations to their headquarters recently completed with the generous support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation as part of The Ontario150 Community Capital Program. These renovations were completed to increase physical and environmental accessibility for people with autism and other complex disabilities who frequent the Centre. This event is taking place on September 12 at 11:00AM.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation’s support of $34 200 funded necessary changes to the physical environment of the Centre to better suit the needs of the people with developmental and sensory challenges served by the people and programs at MukiBaum. Changes include: retrofitting the washrooms to make them more accessible, reinforcing the walls of the gym, upgrading the HVAC system throughout the facility, noise reduction fixes to reduce stress for program participants, and the creation of a state-of-the-art cognitive room. The OTF has helped to guarantee a space for learning, social and emotional development, and evolution for the people served by the MukiBaum Accessibility Centre for years to come.
Established in 2011 by Dr. Nehama Baum, The MukiBaum Accessibility Centre is a Toronto-based non-governmental organization that provides inclusive, community-focused support to children and adults with complex disabilities and their families. Our goal is to enable all citizens with autism and other complex challenges to grow and succeed through innovative, creative, and sustainable programming. The Centre assists those whose needs would otherwise go unaddressed due to a lack of appropriate funding or services.
The MukiBaum Accessibility Centre thanks the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their generous support and invites the community to join them at their headquarters on September 12 at 11:00AM to celebrate with them alongside MP for York Centre Michael Levitt and MPP Monte Kwinter.
