It’s more than a home because of you…
All donations will be matched by Assiniboine Credit Union (ACU)
The comforts of home are a treasure, and for those living with intellectual disabilities in Winnipeg, DASCH provides not just a home but a haven of love and support.
A home supported by DASCH is where people can visit with family and friends, share a meal, play games or watch movies together.
Our community embraces people with intellectual and complex physical disabilities, spanning ages 8 to 74.
These incredible people reside in 58 homes across Winnipeg, engaging in interest-based day programs and exploring diverse opportunities, from Indigenous and multicultural enhancements to vocational training.
Beyond the physical spaces, DASCH services and programs offer dignified and inclusive environments for those with intellectual disabilities to live, learn, and create.
This holiday season, we need your help so we can continue to guarantee safe, accessible, and meaningful days for all the incredible people who call DASCH home, to make it more special your gift will be generously matched by ACU, doubling the impact of your contribution.
