We have begun a series of workshops to provide information, resources and an opportunity to network for the parents and caregivers of these disabled young adults. Their role and involvement in the life of their young adult with a disability is still vast; as services, funding and support are much less available for disabled adults and with waitlists even greater than for children. We purpose to encourage them to look beyond the disability of their young adult and to envision their gifts, and opportunities to use those gifts that could be created for their family member. We invite you to join us to give freedom to these young adults and allow their lives to flourish!

What we hope to achieve for our young adults is:

  • Community partnerships that will allow them to be engaged in the community in practical and meaningful ways

  • To assess job readiness and social skills and provide basic training for their future

  • Opportunities to be more actively engaged in their local church community

  • To assist in developing future life plans

  • To find community recreation opportunities

  • To create age appropriate recreational opportunities at Camp Eulogia and Village Eulogia events.

If you would like to more information about our programs for young adults, contact us at info@villageeulogia.com!

Parent support and education is offered to parents in a number of ways. Each one with the purpose of strengthening relationships within the family and ultimately one’s relationship with God. It is our goal to provide necessary knowledge and resources that will aid in coping and achieving your hopes as a family. Family visitation is the expression of our desire to keep more connected with families throughout the year. This is an opportunity to provide encouragement and support.

Village Eulogia offers parent/caregiver support groups and free workshops on topics such as coping, parenting, resources, and education. If you are interested in attending a workshop or would like more information, please direct your inquiry to Lynne Leyland at lleyland@villageeulogia.com.

Camp Eulogia is a family retreat for families with children with disabilities held at Riverview Christian Camp  Families spend four days (3 nights) in a program aimed at spiritual renewal, connection with each other and sharing a fun time as a family.

A specific focus of Camp Eulogia is on the community. Through worship, group games, outdoor activities (e.g., canoeing, water fun and rock-climbing) and campfire, families, volunteers and staff come together as a community in Christ. We also encourage everyone to contribute to the camp programs and share their gifts.

Programs: Separate programming is offered to children with disabilities, parents and siblings, while there are ample opportunities for families and volunteers to meet, share and worship as a community.

  • Parents: A variety of activities to encourage sharing and learning from and support for each other.

  • Children and Youth with Special Needs: Volunteers with professional backgrounds will lead the program for children/youths with disabilities, through music, crafts, stories related to the theme.

  • Siblings: Siblings will have their own program related to the theme and will share an extra special experience with their parents/caregivers.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed being out in public at events with your loved one with needs. Let us help you learn to be more comfortable and perhaps introduce you to accessible, sensory friendly, relatively cheap, fun family activities. Join our VE families as we attend various events around the GTA.

Each month we will make suggestions of places and times to connect.  You will be responsible for registering if necessary and all costs of attending.  You will be responsible for your loved ones. BUT – you will have the strength and camaraderie of attending at the same time as other VE families. Look for a VE rep wearing one of our t-shirts when you arrive at each event.

Feel free to share ideas of places you enjoy and/or times that best fit your lifestyle. These events are about providing families time to connect, support one another and enjoy being out and about as a family. For questions or suggestions email lleyland@villageeulogia.com
