From physiotherapy and counselling, to speech and language therapy, many young children and their families rely on the resources and support of not-for-profits.
When Jason Balaski's daughter, Brittany, came to him and said she was ready to move in with her partner, Rylee, Jason did what all Dads do; he panicked! Then, after a day or two to pull himself together, he did something very special. He offered to purchase a condo and rent it to Brittany and Rylee so they could have a safe, affordable place to begin their new life together. What a Dad!
Jason's decision to start with a match through Agents of Change meant that a significant contribution would be able to be directed to his favourite not-for-profit. When he offered Brittany the opportunity to decide where those funds would go, she didn't hesitate. She chose Kamloops Children's Therapy & Family Resource Centre, in recognition of the amazing assistance they had given to her sister, Ayden, when she was younger.
With their $618 contribution, Jason and Brittany are helping more families access these critical services, and more children get the support they need.
