Meet an energetic group of parents who have challenged young adults with not enough to do – so in April 2014, they took matters into their own hands. Director Sara Magee has this to say: “Active Lives After School Dufferin (ALAS Dufferin) started out as an idea over coffee. Nine mothers worried about what our special needs kids would do when they finished high school. There is a long waiting list for the only day program available and some graduates of the transition program in high school now have nowhere to go to fill their days. We, the Board of Directors of ALAS Dufferin, are working diligently to maintain a day program where our kids will live an active and healthy life in our community. We want them to feel accepted and we want them to feel that they are a part of the community that they belong.”
ALAS Dufferin Inc. is a Charitable Organization, with a fee for service attendance structure.
