The blog has been on hiatus for a few months, but we are now ready to get back to regular posting!
Let’s take a look at some of the exciting things that have been happening over the past few months:
Gala and Auction
Our annual fundraiser in May, the Lifetime Networks Gala and Silent Auction, was a huge success! It was the best Gala yet, raising a record breaking amount of funds – all of which will be put towards providing scholarships and enhancing programming for our participants.
Non-Profit of the Year
We are so pleased to have been named the Greater Victoria Non-Profit of the Year by the Victoria Chamber of Commerce! We are honored to have received such a fantastic recognition of the hard work we do here at Lifetime Networks.
After much preparation, we hosted our CARF surveyors in early June. CARF provides accreditation services worldwide at the request of health and human service providers. The mission of CARF is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of persons served.
We are still waiting to receive the official results of our survey, but we had a great time hosting our surveyors and showcasing what we do best here at Lifetime Networks. Our surveyors’ initial feedback was very positive and we are grateful for this opportunity to grow and learn as an organization.
Inclusion BC Conference
A small group of self-advocates were supported to attend the Inclusion BC Conference in Richmond BC. Inspired By Love was a fantastic three day conference, including the first Disability Pride March and Celebration in BC! The conference was chock full of inspirational workshops, fun social events (including a dance party!), and old and new friends.
Thanks to everyone who has been a part of these great events. It’s been a fantastic summer so far!
