The direct beneficiaries of the project are: 

• 50 underage children (0 to 6 years old) with physical and/or mental disability, or with Pervasive Developmental Disorders (autism) 

• 40 children and youths with autism between the ages of 6 to 20 years old 

• 30 young adults with severe autism will be welcomed in a daytime center for socialization and accompaniment 

• 15 youths with autism, 14 years and older, will be cared for on a rotation basis in a pioneer living space with private bedrooms and bathrooms


Other beneficiaries are: 

• 220 families (parents and siblings) will be received for family guidance purposes, for social group interventions and for relaxation sessions. The siblings will receive: information about the disability of their brother and/or sister, support in case of difficulties caused by the presence of a brother or a sister with disability, personal attention that will help them develop and grow and a preparation with their parents for the future of their brother or sister. 

• 57 teachers, 22 therapists and 2 social workers will also benefit from a better-adapted working environment to cater more efficiently to the needs of our children.


The center will also be a great place for families where they can meet with the social workers and team of therapists and receive family guidance on the future of their child.


- Outpatient children and youth with disability, and/or with autism, will benefit from around 1665 therapy sessions which will generate income as a self-financing source.

- Furthermore, by transferring the children with autism to this new center, we can provide extra space in the existing buildings for the 3 actual workshops (Chocolate, Biscuits, Decoration) needed for our children and youth with mental disabilities and autism.
