The foundation / A message from the President

At the dawn of the 30th anniversary of the FRAS, we can attest that we are looking ahead with confidence.

From now on, the FRAS (Fondation des Ressources Alternatives du Sud-Ouest) will be established on solid ground thanks to its volunteers, administrative committee, loyal collaborators and exemplary donors.

With the ever-growing fundraising event, the Défi FRAS, and the successful annual Wine and Cheese event, we can be proud of our accomplishments! More fundraising events will be on the way in Châteauguay in the coming year and expanding shortly into Vaudreuil.

We are very pleased to be able to support families who are in need of assistance. With the support of our volunteers and donors, we can offer families a nice break, a rare commodity to them.

Knowing full well that our government services are often overwhelmed, the burden of helping those with such intellectual disabilities and pervasive developmental disorders is ours to bear. We will continue to rise to the challenge to bring them the much needed help these families require.

Once again, I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who are generously contributing with their time and money.

On behalf of all those who have received their help, thank you !

The members of the FRAS are looking forward to a better and brighter future for ALL.
