Partnerships & Collaboration

Partnerships & Collaboration

Easter Seals Camp Horizon works in partnership with many organizations to offer specialized programs and retreats for children with special needs.

Partnerships result in quality programs that are customized to meet individual needs. Organizations often assist with program promotion and we work together to ensure all required adaptations are met for each group. Easter Seals Camp Horizon works with health care experts in oncology, diabetes, nephrology and other specialty areas in a cost-effective manner.

Collaboration is vital to our community at large and some organizations provide medical staff, dietitians, and volunteers to further reduce costs. As resources are shared, duplication is avoided.

Did You Know Part 1

In 1951 Canadian Mothers began marches such as one led by Canada’s first female Cabinet Minister, Ellen Fairclough, MP for Hamilton West. As a result of their efforts, the research of Dr. Jonas Salk was well funded, creating the historic made-in-Canada cure for polio. Today, Easter Seals Alberta funds vital programs and services for adults with disabilities and special needs.
