Ability Online Support Network

An online community for families of all abilities

Youth with disabilities, and the caregivers that support them, often have unique needs and require specialized care. The Ability Online Support Network has created an online platform that provides the customized resources and tools those youth, young adults, and family caregivers require. With the support of Petro-Canada CareMakers Foundation, they are able to expand that support to include even more essential resources.

Building more customized resources for more caregivers.

Our funding will allow Ability Online to enhance their platform to give the parents and family caregivers of youth with disabilities more ways to share, learn, and engage with each other. These new resources will include webinars, breakout rooms, forums, chat and blog functions, and educational tools. Whether it’s advice, support, sharing of effective strategies or just finding a sympathetic ear, they will soon be able to access it on the platform whenever they need it, around the clock and across the country.

We are proud to work with Ability Online as they expand their online platform.
