Independent Facilitation and Person-Directed Planning

Melissa’s Magic

Facilitation with Melissa has been an honour. She is thoughtful, fun-loving, wise, and resourceful. When Melissa makes a decision, there is little to sway her from her goal. Our facilitation has taken several interesting turns, both with successes and new learnings. In March of 2017, Melissa decided it was time to finish her high school education. I knew it was time to fasten my seatbelt, things were about to happen.

We consulted with our Board office and learned that Melissa had only one course left to complete. Wow! Not only was our goal achievable, we could almost taste the finish line. Melissa determined that she did not want to do an academic course. Her previous experiences had shown her that that was not the best direction. The other option was a co-op placement.

The key to success is to understand your strengths and acknowledge your weaknesses. The first placement we explored was in the food service industry, and even though there were several very positive aspects of this work, we quickly came to realize that this was not the best fit for Melissa.

We worked together with the co-op placement teacher, and came across a little gold nugget of a placement. Melissa was wanted and needed to assist with a senior’s program within her community. She would be assisting in the set up for various events, cleaning, as well as speaking and interacting with patrons. They had the opportunity to be blessed with the warm laughter, hard-working spirit, and dedication of a very motivated co-op student. The coordinator of the program was calm, understanding, and flexible; some very key qualities that expanded success upon success.

Melissa graduated in June 2017. Her co-op teacher wrote this very beautiful tribute about Melissa.

“…Long story short, the best student I have had all year is Melissa. She has taught me more than anyone about perseverance, patience, and kindness. She made me laugh every day, and brought me to tears more than once in every way. She is profound and perceptive in such a simple and honest way. She has a great sense of humour…”

Melissa has since conquered another goal, a home of her own, and is setting her sights on her next achievement. I have a feeling it’s time to get buckled up again.

Advocacy in Action

Michael lives in an assisted-housing facility in Vanier. He is not employed and has a lot of time on his hands. I meet with Michael once a week, usually on Tuesday afternoons, and we do a variety of activities, including: bowling, billiards, films, swimming, museums, and occasional trips out of town. I am retired and I have time to spend with someone who may not have a network for social and recreational activities. We talk about a variety of topics including his family history, hockey (Michael is a big Montreal Canadiens fan), life at his residence, and any other topic that he might raise. Often, I do not know where the conversation may go, but it gives him an opportunity to express his thoughts and feelings. I enjoy spending time with Michael because, selfishly, I feel I am doing something worthwhile for someone else, but also, he seems truly appreciative of my interest in him and my commitment to seeing him on a regular basis.

Fetal Alcohol Resource Program

The Fetal Alcohol Resource Program (FARP) is thriving and growing! The Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) community across Ontario is busy with the recent announcement by the Ministry of Children and Youth Service of a provincial FASD strategy. One component of this strategy is to establish an FASD Worker program aimed at providing education and supports to parents and caregivers of children with FASD. In our region, the funds for the FASD Worker initiative were allocated to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario-Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre (CHEO-OCTC). FARP was invited to partner with CHEO-OCTC to build the model and facilitate implementation of this program for Ottawa, and the counties of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott and Russell. As a result, we are in the process of hiring staff to provide support to families in these areas.

In anticipation of the FASD Worker program launch and equipping the FASD workers, FARP was identified as one of the leaders in delivering evidence-based FASD training to agencies not only within Ottawa, but across Ontario and Canada. Two-day training has been provided at KidsInclusive in Kingston and the team will be heading to Sault-Ste-Marie in May to deliver training at Thrive.  Our team recently returned from Sydney, Nova Scotia where the feedback was glowing – “… Everyone I have spoken to was very pleased with the clear and concise information and commented on how your delivery kept them engaged and interested. In addition to this, the fact that you have the personal experience of parenting a child with FASD only added support to the information you were delivering. Often, as social workers, we can empathize with our clients and gain, as best we can, an understanding of their situations while recognizing that we can never truly “know” what they are going through. Without a doubt, as a mother of a child with a diagnosis of FASD, your personal perspective was valuable in helping us understand the day to day challenges and some of the difficulties that can be experienced by parents when trying to navigate the “system”.”

FARP is proud to be accepted as presenters at the 8th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD in Vancouver. FARP will illustrate our innovative model of community capacity building and service navigation.  Inspired by the success of FARP, three regions in western Canada are replicating a similar model of service delivery to support their local neurodevelopmental disability communities and FARP has been invited to collaborate with the teams in British Columbia, Alberta and Yukon.

FARP hasn’t forgotten our roots in Ottawa and continues to provide training to local community organizations and service providers. To date, FARP has provided training to over 3000 individuals.

Lifetime Networks

Lifetime Networks is growing!  We have more families onboard, and more workshops and educational events are being offered.

In March, we ran a workshop on Creating an Emergency Plan, and in April, Donna Thomson will show us how families can use TYZE Personal Networks. TYZE is a secure website for those involved in the care and life of an individual with a disability. It allows common documents to be stored and accessed by the network and is a place for those involved in a loved one’s life to chat, and volunteer to help in an individual’s care and social activities. Upcoming workshops are planned on Wills, Estate and Trust Planning, and Financial Planning for Families.

The Pilot Project, in conjunction with the Mental Illness Caregivers Association (MICA), officially wrapped up in February. Based on our learnings we have developed a mental health strategy to work with families who have an adult child living with a mental illness and a training module for Facilitators who are, or will be, working with a family with a loved one living with a mental illness. In addition, we look forward to educating mental health agencies about Lifetime Networks and the benefits that may help people living with a mental illness become more active and included members in their communities.

Lifetime Networks is also working to offer more family events. We are currently working with Propeller Dance to run an inclusive dance event. We are also planning a potluck and an accessible bowling night. Our hope is that families will become more engaged and plan other social activities for all network families. Our Facilitators will be there encouraging and planning with them to make this happen.

Any families who are interested in learning more about the Lifetime Networks Program should contact Kelly Howson, Program Coordinator, at 613-761-9522 X 223 or send her an e-mail at khowson@citizenadvocacy.org.

Children’s Sibling Group

The Children’s Sibling Groups are winding down for the 2017-18 year. Our final group will take place on May 12th, where we will be celebrating the work done by all the groups’ participants. Cake and personalized certificates will be part of this celebration as we officially end the 4th year of the Sibs.

The program added a new feature this year for the parents – Coffee’s On. We have learned that parents often put themselves last and tend to leave the house on the morning of groups without eating any breakfast. Coffee’s On is held every month when groups are running. Parents can sit and chat while having a light breakfast and coffee or tea. This also offers parents the chance to meet each other, share resources, challenges and celebrations. The Program Coordinator is always on hand at Coffee’s On to answer questions and to hand out flyers for upcoming events at Citizen Advocacy.

Families interested in learning more about the program can contact Kelly Howson, Program Coordinator, for registration details or to get more information at khowson@citizenadvocacy.org.

Walking in My Shoes

Walking in My Shoes (WIMS) is a monthly meeting for parents of children with special needs, of all ages, to meet, greet and share experiences through facilitated discussions and guest speakers.

There are two meetings left before the summer break. On Tuesday, May 15 our focus will be Estate Planning for a Loved One with a Disability. Natalie A. Sanna is an associate lawyer at Persona Law Group. She is dedicated to helping clients and their loved ones plan for, and deal with, disabilities, incapacity, illness and death. She has been drawn to the areas of Wills, Estates, and Trusts, since 2003.  Natalie will share how to access, manage and support you, and your loved ones, to obtain a secure future and peace of mind.

Our final meeting of the year on Tuesday, June 19 will be an Informal Discussion and Information Sharing event.

We look forward to seeing you at the meetings. For more information contact our Facilitator, Darlene Donnelly at wims@citizenadvocacy.org or 613-761-9522 ext. 236.

Ottawa Race Weekend

Join the Scotiabank Charity Challenge at Ottawa Race Weekend on May 26-27. Ottawa Race Weekend is Canada’s largest running event and it provides opportunities for the community, all levels of runners, walkers and those in wheelchairs, to participate. The sense of accomplishment and community inclusion that comes from participating in Ottawa Race Weekend is richly rewarding for all.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of Citizen Advocacy’s team! Our plan is to fundraise together, give away some great prizes and enjoy ourselves on race day. No one gets left behind.

An Opportunity to Go Hiking Together

One of our Advocates has offered to lead an accessible 2 km walk/hike on May 5th in Gatineau Park. The plan is to meet at 11 am, hike and then retire to the Chelsea Pub for socializing, drinks and snacks. The intent is to keep the group hikes going during summer if there is interest in doing so. All are welcome to join. Hikes will always have an easy and more challenging route option with views and snacks along the way. For full hike details please contact Kurt direct at trailpeak@rogers.com.

Kurt is the organizer and creator of trailpeak.com, a Canadian trails database used by hikers from coast to coast.

Safe & Secure Book Club

The Safe and Secure book club has been a hit with parents and caregivers and we are in the planning stages of deciding what this will look like for the second round.

At last month’s Safe and Secure Book Club, Rob Meredith from RBC was our speaker. We discussed and had our questions answered about RDSPs (Registered Disability Savings Plans) and financial planning. There was lots of learning and note taking going on!

G1 Study Group

The G1 study group began through listening to the voices and interests of our participants in the Independent Facilitation and Person-Directed Planning Program who have goals of getting their drivers licence in the future. The group’s purpose was to offer individuals alternative ways of learning and studying The Official MTO Driver’s Handbook. This group runs every second Monday and includes studying each chapter, discussion, visual examples, trivia and G1 practice tests. The group offers resources as well and knowledge of the basic information they need about learning to drive in Ontario, safe driving practices and how to get a licence to drive a vehicle. There has been great interest in the group and we welcome newcomers each meeting. The plan for the G1 Study group is to offer it in the future and to pass on our learnings and successes to community agencies who may want to offer it as well.

G1 Study Group members taking a surprise practice quiz. Learning within a group is fun when there is trivia involved!

Board Member Introduction

Ron Warren

How long have you been on the board?
I have almost completed two full years with the Citizen Advocacy (CA) board.

What motivated you to join the CA board?
After having been an advocate for several years, and also serving on several work committees, I felt I may be able to contribute to the CA board.

What is your work and/or volunteer background?
I am a project manager related to business transformation and technological advancement for the Canada Border Services Agency. I have volunteered for both the Ottawa Mission and CA since moving to Ottawa from Toronto approximately 11 years ago.

What is your education and/or training background?
I have a degree in Political Science and have taken several courses in project management and am currently working towards my Project Management Professional designation.

What do you enjoy most about your board involvement?
I thoroughly enjoy hearing about all the meaningful initiatives and programs that are administered by Citizen Advocacy and which provide immeasurable benefit for our clients and the community.

Please describe the other ways in which you are involved with Citizen Advocacy
I was involved with the Marketing & Awareness committee for a short period of time but unfortunately could not continue due to work commitments. I would like to be able to join another committee this year (or re-join the Marketing & Awareness committee) moving forward.

Tell us about yourself
I am keenly interested in raising the profile of Citizen Advocacy as I sincerely believe in its mandate and have witnessed firsthand, as an advocate, the positive impact that this organization makes to the lives of those that want nothing other than to live full, meaningful, lives and be active members of society. Oscar Wilde famously opined that, “to live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all”. I feel proudly that as a member of the board I am contributing to ensuring a strategic direction for CA that will continue to promote programs and initiatives that strive to ensure that those with physical or mental disabilities aren’t simply existing, but actually living.

Volunteer Profile

Helena Sonea

I have been involved with the Children’s Sibling Group program since its inception in summer/fall 2014. I initially joined the advisory committee to provide the lived experience of a sibling who has siblings with disabilities to the committee. As time went on my desire to join this committee and to facilitate the siblings’ group program, was driven by my personal experience of disability. I have two brothers on the autism spectrum, and as a child there were little to no supports for siblings to help sort through the sibling experience. I knew when I began my professional career, that I wanted to see significant change to the disability population and to provide greater supports to families. Supports that did not necessarily exist when I was growing up.

I am involved in the sibling group program as both an advisory committee member and facilitator. In my role on the advisory, I support the staff at Citizen Advocacy in the annual planning and development of the program. For example, helping develop comprehensive evaluations for all stakeholders to complete annually. These evaluations are invaluable as they help ensure the program is meeting its strategic objectives and breaking down barriers for families who have children with disabilities. In my role as facilitator of the program, I actively develop an age appropriate curriculum that provides a safe space for individual learning and sharing of experiences of siblings with disabilities.

Currently, I am the manager of operations and strategic initiatives with the Health Charities Coalition of Canada.  I work directly with the Coalition’s membership in identifying areas for strategic engagement and advancing health policy priorities with public policy officials. I am a graduate of the Masters of Critical Disability Studies program at York University.

I enjoy being able to help the children in the siblings’ program through scenarios that I experienced as a child. I love being able to empower the children and show them that they are incredible people, who will do incredible things, and that disability is a part of their lives, but not their whole lives. I enjoy being able to help the children create new friendships with their peers with other people “who just get it.”

I am an adult sibling of people with disabilities who is still figuring it out.

Mick has been waiting 14 years for a friend

Mick has been waiting 14 years for a volunteer Advocate. He is in his early 60s, uses a wheelchair and has a developmental disability. He would love to be matched with someone who shares his love of sports and is comfortable with Mick’s limited conversation style. He’d also just love spending time with you going for a coffee or a walk outside.

As a friend to someone with a disability you can have a profound effect on their life by reducing loneliness and isolation; helping to achieve hopes and dreams; developing personal networks and relationships; decreasing vulnerability; and increasing self-confidence, mental and physical health.

Join our team of more than 250 volunteer advocates who are enriching the lives of someone in their community. You will gain a wonderful new friendship – someone to share activities that you love. You need to be over the age of 18 and to make a minimum commitment of 12 months to this role [Note: your status in Canada may affect your ability to make this commitment e.g. visitor visa, student visa, refugee claimant]. Preparation and ongoing support are provided.

Hello

Hélène Courchesne

We are delighted to welcome back Hélène as the Team Leader for the Independent Facilitation and Person-Directed Planning program. She has an extensive background supporting children and adults with developmental disabilities to help increase their quality of life.

Louise Cayer-Deslauriers

Louise has joined us part-time to cover Sara Rafiei’s maternity leave. She has been working in the social services field for over 30 years with adults living with developmental and intellectual disabilities.

Goodbye

Andrea Podruski

Andrea was a highly-valued employee with Citizen Advocacy Ottawa for more than 14 years. She was part of the growth and evolution of this organization and its work supporting people with disabilities. More broadly, she has had an impact on the local disability sector and its evolution in supporting people with disabilities and their families. She was an instrumental member of our team, and the development of the Independent Facilitation offering and the evolution of our work providing person-directed planning and support to people and families. She has also provided valuable leadership in the Lifetime Networks and the Everyday Champions programs. Andrea left us to join the Office of Disability Issues at the Federal Government as a Policy Advisor, bringing her vast experience and knowledge to benefit public policy at a broad level. A very good move for Andrea and a definite loss for Citizen Advocacy.

Lynne O’Connell

In A.A. Milne’s words “how lucky I am to have something that makes saying good bye so hard!” It has been an honour and a privilege to conclude my career as an Independent Planning Facilitator with Citizen Advocacy Ottawa. The ties that bind the Citizen Advocacy Team together, under a visionary leadership, are because each of you believe and are passionate about what you do – enhancing the quality of life for all!

Sara Rafiei

Sara will be on maternity leave for the next 12 months. We look forward to hearing about the safe delivery of her baby and, of course, to meeting the little one and enjoying some baby cuddles.
