SaskParty Leader Brad Wall was in Saskatoon on Monday for the official opening of new facility housing by the Ability in Me Program.
The AIM Program is a non-profit, charitable organization which provides specialized therapy and language programs to help children with Down Syndrome.
March 21 is recognized by the United Nations and World Health Organization as World Down Syndrome Day.
AIM provides programs for children from infancy to the age of 21.
The new facility is on Millar Avenue in Saskatoon, and will offer expanded programs and a more welcoming space for families.
“We’re here today because of the tireless work of a volunteer board and highly trained professionals, ready to meet the needs of a very special group of young people,” Wall said.
AIM receives financial support from local businesses, individuals, and Saskatchewan Ministry of Education. The ministry signed a contract with AIM, covering April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2017. Its maximum contribution is set at $720,000.
