A MESSAGE FROM NEW HAVEN LEARNING CENTRE’S EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MARCH 2, 2021

Dear New Haven families, friends and community,

As we move into the one-year anniversary of dealing with the realities of COVID-19, I wish to compliment each and every one of you as unwaveringly dedicated caregivers to your children, and to your success in managing incredibly stressful and challenging times. Equally important to acknowledge is the commitment from our staff across the board who have worked with caregivers while balancing their own concerns with professional service delivery and they have maintained outstanding integrity while adapting to new "normals". March 2021 offers us an opportunity to reflect on the last twelve months, however not to linger in that experience but collectively move forward with a commitment to continuity of care and a clear sense of purpose in maintaining evidence-based proactive and foundational services for those with autism across Ontario.

New Haven has responded to the call for applications from the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services and is looking to lead a partnership with community colleagues - equally passionate and professionally trained in early interventions and caregiver mediated service models. The trust in our services and service models has consistently been supported by our community partners, donors and stakeholders. We are excited to build on the confidence of those who have donated since March of 2020, and we have bright prospects ahead for new corporate and philanthropic investments.

Let's not forget the importance throughout all of these new opportunities that we individually and collectively have a responsibility to be vigilant in our acceptance and adherence to social gathering and physical distancing restrictions. Together we can not only continue to soar, but now truly thrive. As we've maintained during the last year,

Crisis doesn't mean we step aside,
It means we step up,
It means we soar.
We take every opportunity to thrive.
