The Cold Water Ranch Lodge is an amazing initiative that will benefit
special needs families and individuals with disabilities across BC. But
we need your help!
One mother wrote to us: “Our daughter is 13 and I am so thrilled that maybe we will be able to
vacation with her. She is in a group home now and we have never gone on
vacation with her. Thank you!” Your donation will help a young girl go on a vacation with her family for the first time. Imagine the difference you can make!
Help us make this difference! Donate to Abilitas to support the Cold Water Ranch Lodge. The
Abilitas Foundation is a registered charity (BN845514025RR0001) and will issue a tax receipt
for your donation.
Receiptable Online Donations can be made through our account with CanadaHelps.org.
Direct Donations can be made by sending a cheque (payable to ABILITAS FOUNDATION) to 200 - 2296 McCallum Road,
Abbotsford BC, V2S 3P4.
The Abilitas Foundation is looking for individuals or groups wanting
to volunteer their time or services to help create the Cold Water Ranch
Lodge, both during the preparation and construction phases of the project and once
the lodge has opened its doors.
If you have specific services that you’d like to volunteer (e.g. landscaping, independent fundraising, plumbing, painting, carpentry, etc.), we would
love to hear from you as soon as possible. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

respite support are forcing individuals and families into crisis, and driving
parents into poverty and despair. A respite lodge like this will offer
families a glimmer of hope."- BC Association for Community Living
