Season's Greetings,  

We invite you to join Cantalician Center for Learning's annual appeal! As we look back at 2017, we can't help but feel a sense of accomplishment. We enthusiastically continue to provide person-centered compassionate services that promote independence and offer meaningful opportunities to the roughly 990* children and adults with disabilities served at Cantalician Center for Learning (CCL).

We celebrated the capabilities of the adults in Day Habilitation Services who have volunteered countless hours at more than ten area organizations across Western New York. We were overjoyed to expand our footprint at Tri-Main Center to accommodate the growth of our packaging clientele at Diversified Labor Solutions, a division of CCL. We embraced the benefits of yoga by creating space in our Academic Campus for a yoga studio. The space allows our educators to hold sessions with their students to improve their ability to self-regulate their bodies in order focus and learn.

It's been quite a year, but our work is not done. CCL is supported largely by government funding. However, that doesn't always cover all the costs we incur to meet everyone's needs. We need your help to continue providing the following services to people from birth through retirement. 

  • Early Childhood Community Services works with families in the region to help a child with potential learning delays or difficulties.
  • School Age Services prepares students with disabilities in Kindergarten through 12th grade for their future.
  • Day Habilitation Services operates at various community centers across the region,teaching individuals how to be independent and participate in the community.
  • Medicaid Service Coordination assists children and adults with disabilities in accessing services to achieve their own unique goals.
  • Our NEW Child Health Homes Management offers comprehensive care management for children ages 0 to 21 by providing personal attention to the child's physical, behavioral, rehabilitative, and social service needs.
  • Diversified Labor Solutions, our Employment Services division provides people with the opportunity to work and be integrated members of the workforce. 

Without the continued support of generous donors like you, the needs of the people we serve will likely go unmet. To continue making a difference in the lives of the people with disabilities and families that we serve, we are asking for your support this holiday season. CCL is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we're asking that you make a tax deductible donation to our annual appeal.

How do we plan to use your donation? This year, a major focus of our fundraising efforts is the renovation of our Academic Campus Courtyard. The Courtyard is currently used as a secure space for our students to play outside,but the reality is that it's not very child friendly. The concrete ground in the courtyard gets very hot and the hard surface can be dangerous for those who struggle with behavioral issues. We would like to purchase outdoor sensory equipment and toys, install canopies for shade, and lay rubber turf over the concrete. These improvements will make it a more fun and safe place for everyone to enjoy. We really hope that you can make this dream a reality for our students. 

You will also be contributing to these target areas of need:

  • Your donation will support the 85% of children and adults we serve that live in poverty and are in need of the necessary items to lead healthy and happy lives.
  • Your donation will support field trips and activities that allow our students and individuals to learn critical life skills in the community.
  • Your donation supports our ability recognize our "exceptional" employees who work hard each and everyday to provide quality services.
