EVERY CONTRIBUTION MAKES AN IMMEDIATE AND LASTING IMPACT
When you make a donation to Turning Leaf you’re not just helping fund programs – you are providing a direct line of hope for the individuals we support. Every dollar directly impacts the lives of people living with intellectual disabilities and mental illness.
Your gift can be the one that provides crisis support when someone is struggling with mental illness, or the one that allows someone to be sheltered safely for the night. Your gift can be the one that gets food to those that are hungry, or the one that brings our community together by showing unconditional acceptance to each person that walks through our door.
You can empower this change in someone’s life. You do make an impact. Join us, and donate today.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE FUND
Our Emergency Response Fund allows us to address our other crisis related emergent needs.
This fund helps us respond to every crisis without hesitation, keeping our participants safety and health front of mind so that we can continue to provide the unconditional acceptance and unwavering support they deserve.
Maybe it is a hotel room for a young woman escaping a violent and abusive partner to keep her safe, or a bus ticket so someone can attend a funeral back home. It can be scheduling time with our clinical services team for someone experiencing suicidal ideation, or dropping off food from our Community Cupboard to someone experiencing food insecurity.
With your donation to the Emergency Response Fund you are giving us the ability to say to each and every participant we support: “I see you are hurting. How can we help?”
The Community Cupboard began as a physical cupboard, a way to store emergency food and hygiene items for the individuals we support. We began by filling it with items like Boost for those who have been without a meal for a few days, pop-top soups for those without can openers or even pots to heat it in. We stock feminine hygiene products for our women who have to choose between buying tampons or dinner. Shampoo, soap, and razors for those trying so desperately to maintain their pride and dignity in times of hardship.
As the Community Cupboard grew, we realized not everything our participants need fits in to a cupboard and that there are so many needs for those in crisis that extend past a meal and a shower.
Expanding the Cupboard
Our Community Cupboard now helps fund our other emergency needs – whether it is a hotel room for a young woman escaping a violent and abusive partner, or a bus ticket so that someone struggling with a drug addiction can attend a recovery centre the moment he is ready to take that difficult step. It might be paying for overtime for a staff sitting with an individual who has been victimized and hurt and is scared, waiting to be seen in an emergency room, so that they don’t have to be alone. It can be scheduling time with our therapist for someone experiencing suicidal ideation, even though they do not qualify for funding.
With your donation to the Community Cupboard you are giving us the ability to say to each and every participant we support, “I see you are hurting. How can we help?”
We can’t predict a crisis, but we’re always ready for them.
Home Safe Home ensures our participants have the means necessary to continue walking the path toward healing and hope with the promise of being able start new or start over. Help us bring more people HOME with a donation that will give individuals in crisis and in need right now the support they deserve to live safely and independently in the community. When you support our Home Safe Home initiative you provide the ongoing critical funds needed for crisis and transitional housing for our participants who need it as well as the ability to provide Fresh Start Kits filled with the items needed to successfully move into their first home or start over. Help us bring the vulnerable in our community Home Safe Home.
