self-directed models in Manitoba by donating to this special fund!

In 2013, In the Company of Friends (ICOF) celebrated its 20th anniversary.  (Click on the tab on the right at the top of this page to learn more about ICOF).   It was and continues to be the only self-directed model currently available to people with intellectual disabilities in Manitoba. The first participants of this unique and progressive model began receiving funding in 1993 and, as they say, the rest is history.

To acknowledge this important passage, the Innovative LIFE Options (LIFE) Board of Directors has established a 20th anniversary fund

In the past, you may have been a support network member, a family member, an ICOF employer, staff person, community volunteer, government employee, or person interested in moving self-directed models forward.

 With the establishment of this fund you can also be part of the future!  Please support this designated fund with a financial gift and help pave the way for the next stop on the journey.

 All donations will be held in a designated fund and used to promote self-directed living for Manitoban’s with disabilities. It will be held in trust for special events, projects, activities or special requests from ICOF participants/networks or others interested in self-directed lifestyles. 

***Money will not be used by LIFE for day-to-day operations, core staffing or expenses.

If you would like more information or have any questions about your donation please contact the LIFE office directly at 204-772-3557 or toll free in Manitoba 1-866-516-5445.
