Peaceful Hearts is located in the Town of Georgina, one hour north of Toronto and was founded by Karin Cacciola in June 2017. The Cacciola family’s personal journey helped Karin become more aware of the increased need for support for special needs families’, day and weekend programs, overnight respite and reduced wait lists for services.
To ensure every individual and family with special needs have an opportunity to experience their personal value in a supportive, caring, fun, life enhancing and skill building environment built on advocacy, community education and partnerships where quality of life is at the core.
Our programs will be designed to meet the needs of every individual in an encouraging environment providing opportunities to experience technology, life skills, various sensory activities including art, music and dance. We are currently finalizing location, staffing and fundraising – check back regularly for updates on our site.
Future Respite Program is in research and development stage. Our goal is to offer much needed overnight respite that provides night nursing support including post 18+ years.
This program will create supportive life balance assistance for special needs families’ caregivers including workshops, activity classes and connecting with other families and community resources.
