Moving A-Head Campaign
Making a Difference for People with Acquired Brain Injury
Moving A-Head Campaign - NPHC is expanding its supportive housing in Greater Sudbury.
NPHC’s Wade Hampton House in Sudbury, a home for people with Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI), currently has a waiting list of twenty-five people. As of April 1, 2015, NPHC has embarked on a Capital Campaign to build a second residence to accommodate twelve more people with Acquired Brain Injury and reduce the long waiting list of members in the community that are searching for necessary accommodations.
Please help us raise $1 million to build a second home to care for loved ones with severe disabilities.
View the schematic drawings PDF created by Perry + Perry ARCHITECTS Inc of the proposed new building that will be situated on the Wade Hampton House property that includes a pond, gardens and walking trails. The new building will include 6 bedrooms and 6 apartments designed to accommodate Acquired Brain Injury residents.

Standing Oaks is a supportive housing program for people in Sarnia with severe physical disabilities, providing a single solution for care and accessible, affordable accommodation.
Standing Oaks was opened in 2004 with the help of our partner, Community Concerns for the Medically Fragile (CCMF), a Sarnia parent-driven community group that supports the needs of the medically fragile and their families. The six-bedroom congregate care home with communal kitchen, lounges, dining room and therapy room, provides 24/7 support for five individuals who are medically fragile, enabling them to live in the community, as opposed to a hospital or long term care facility. Additionally, the home has a respite bed that provides caregiver relief and 24/7 care for individuals requiring short term accommodation within the community. Care is provided by March of Dimes Canada’s Independent Living Services Department.
The demand for supportive accommodation is very high, with eight individuals currently on the waiting list. To alleviate the need for expensive new specialized housing, NPHC has begun contruction on a four-bedroom extension to Standing Oaks, plus an additional bathroom and laundry room, to be completed in 2018. Necessary equipment to allow the residents with physical disabilities to safely and comfortably live in the home will include ceiling lifts, automatic door openers, and a hydrobath for physical therapy.
We hope you will consider a donation or a grant to help fund the construction or safety equipment needed for this much needed expansion.
Your support will be publically recognized by March of Dimes Canada, and we would be happy to arrange a site visit to Standing Oaks where you can see first-hand why your support is needed.
