Your gift to "Where Most Needed" will help equip Spinal Cord Injury Alberta with resources to fulfill our mission to "empower persons with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities to achieve independence and full community participation" through the provision of services in six key areas: Rehabilitation Support and Service Coordination, Community Development and Systemic Change, Peer Program and Information Services.

Spinal Cord Injury Fitness and Wellness Centre

Regular fitness for people with spinal cord injury or other physical disabilities is important for quality of life. Incorporating active fitness into daily life typically leads to better mental and physical health. For $22 per month, you can support one participant for a 1 hour workout with a Specialized Fitness Coordinator in Calgary's SCI Fitness and Wellness Centre.  Donate now.

 

 


Peer Program

SCI Alberta was founded on the principle of peers helping peers. Peer volunteers share first-hand knowledge of life with a spinal cord injury or other physical disability. This kind of support is invaluable to those who have questions or are just looking for a friend who has "been there, done that." For $25, you can provide an opportunity for a member to attend a SCI Alberta peer event, such as how to maintain your wheelchair, a healthy lifestyle, research, intimacy or simply a coffee date.  Donate now.

 

Discovering the Power in Me is an empowerment training program that gives people with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities the tools to manage change and set and achieve goals.  The goal is to help participants become more resilient while experiencing change through creative ways of thinking and doing.  For $50 you can sponsor a person with disabilities to participate in this program.   Donate now.

 

Helping Way Fund

People with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities often need "emergency" funding to help them with essential items ranging from a properly fitted wheelchair cushion to unexpected wheelchair repairs or even essentials such as rent or winter clothing. When all other sources of funding have been exhausted, individuals turn to the Helping Way Fund. The maximum grant is $1000 per year. This fund is made up of contributions from the Harvey DeCock Society, Alberta SCI Solutions Alliance and individual giving.  Donate now.
