Move & Groove Night

We would like to create a physical activity opportunity for kids in & around Niverville who have physical, developmental or behavioural disabilities.
First Thursday of the Month from 6:30-8:00pm at the 4th Ave Bible Church (fully accessible). The first ½ hour will be an organized activity, suitable for a variety of skill levels/adapted abilities.
 
The second ½ hour will be movement through music, using family-friendly videos and lyrics. The final ½ hour will be a snack and socializing time, a chance to cool down and connect!

 


Common Ground is a safe place for caregivers to connect and explore community possibilities for people with special needs.

 

 Common Ground

~ connect ~ encourage ~ inspire ~

 

...a place to connect, encourage and inspire families who are supporting those with special needs...

 

Living with special needs, and supporting those with special needs, can sometimes feel like a daunting, overwhelming process. Though there are many joys and blessings, there are many challenges and it can feel isolating. Through shared stories and experiences, we can support and encourage one another on this journey. This is also a place to DREAM BIG about inclusion, opportunities and community connections!

 

 

Planning Team

As a team, we will meet together throughout the year to pray, plan, dream and encourage each other. As ideas come together, we will work to share the responsibilities created and ask others for their help as needed.
