Making Strides for Lifeskills Pathway

May 22 @ 9:00 am - June 5 @ 6:00 pm

Announcing HDCH’s Second Annual Making Strides Campaign. In 2020, our community amazed us by exceeding our $10K goal and raising $31,500 for Tuition Assistance!
This year, we invite you to support HDCH LifeSkills Pathway during our Making Strides Campaign May 22 – June 5, 2021. There are so many ways to get involved:

Participate: you can walk, roll, kick, jog, jump, bike, run or move
Donate: with a donation to a participant or team.
Support: As an auction donor or bidder

Coinciding with the fundraiser this year is an online auction. Place your bids beginning Saturday May 29 at 9am. The bidding closes June 5th at 6pm.

What are we supporting?

The LifeSkills Pathway was launched in September 2020, supports students at HD with cognitive disabilities in their learning and in preparing them for participation in the wider world.  The students in our LifeSkills Pathway explore learning that supports them in managing everyday tasks leading to greater independence as adults.  These include things like learning how to take public transit, operating a washing machine, and making change at a store.  At HD, we provide a variety of learning approaches, which include attending classes with other HD students, combined with focused life-skills learning.

Through donor support we have renovated a classroom and added a window, purchased curriculum and employed highly-qualified staff. As five students enroll in LifeSkills Pathway for 21-22, your ongoing support is deeply appreciated.
