Your Contributions at Work
There are many people in our society who suffer from disabilities that affect their daily living. At Silent Voice, the deaf community can access services to help both them and their families cope with their situation.
Tavis was a student who, with his mother’s encouragement, participated in the basketball fun day for the deaf community hosted by Silent Voice, a ShareLife funded agency, Soon after, he joined a sports team for the deaf, and helped host sports clinics and events with the support of our agency. Tavis was eventually hired as a counselor fo the Silent Voice Sign Language Day Camp. Today, he says “I want to be a role model for deaf kids and I’m grateful for how much Silent Voice has changed my life.”
Last year, Silent Voice provide services to over 750 people in the deaf community, helping families to communicate with their deaf child, and improving access to services and creating a sense of belonging among the deaf community.
Your support for ShareLife was helped to make this possible … you have worked wonders!

This weekend September 24 & 25 will be a collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada. Every year, the Bishops of Canada make an appeal for financial assistance to support their work and the work of each diocese/eparchy by means of the Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada. Through your contribution to the Collection, you too can collaborate with the Bishops in their ministry to teach, sanctify and govern, as well as to support the faith and evangelization mission of the Church.
