Ensemble is a parent-directed resource for families caring for a child with a disability that provides support from birth through adulthood. The name, Ensemble, is French for “together” and was chosen for the strength and resiliency found in the connections built between families and within the community.

Ensemble inspires possibilities for children by promoting family leadership so that families thrive and become active members in the community.

Ensemble was founded in 2000 by two moms whose lives have been affected by their children’s diagnosis of a disability. These moms understood the importance of connecting to others as the first step in helping families cope with the challenges of raising a child with a disability.

We meet ONCE a month via telephone or Zoom at 7pm for approximately 1 hour. By joining our committee, you will be able to openly share experiences and make suggestions. These opinions will provide valuable family perspectives everyone will benefit from.

Please consider making your voice heard.

Grocery Delivery Initiative Volunteer Opportunity – ASPIRE

The goal of this initiative is to provide free grocery delivery to those in the community that have severe mobility issues and other health problems that prevent them from getting groceries for themselves. In addition to this we provide delivery to those who consider themselves to be at high risk for COVID19 infection.
General Overview of Volunteer Activities:

  • Volunteers will be assigned to one person on need; screened and assigned by ASPIRE.
  • The client will provide a grocery list up to a maximum of 80 dollars to which brand names and preferences are given.
  • At pre-arranged times, volunteers will shop at a grocery store in the area and then provide contactless delivery to the client’s place of residence. Grocery deliveries are limited to once a week at maximum.
  • Following drop-off, the client is to e-transfer the whole cost of groceries to the volunteer. Volunteers will be reimbursed by ASPIRE if they do not receive payment within a reasonable window after delivery.

Currently, the Grocery Delivery Initiative is providing service in Windsor, ON.
We seek to help those who have great difficulty getting groceries for themselves on a day to day basis. This may include, but is not limited, to: Elderly, Immunocompromised, Respiratory Disease suffers (Chronic Bronchitis or Emphysema), Heart Failure patients. We will also be assisting those considered most susceptible in contracting or suffering the most deleterious effects of COVID-19.
Status of Initiative:
We are currently delivering to several individuals in the Windsor region who have been referred to us by workers at the Hospice of Windsor Essex. This initiative has been active since early June 2020 and we plan to continue the initiative indefinitely due to the significant need for this service in this region.
