Who, What and When
Tania’s Place’s Executive Director and founder, Francie Trajkovski, is a proud mother of an adult daughter who is developmentally delayed. Just like you her family had real concerns, “Where will our daughter go or do after she graduates High School?” , “ I will have to leave my job to stay home with our daughter”, “We don’t want her staying home all day doing nothing”, “WHAT DO WE DO, WHERE WILL SHE GO?!"
When she started to research her daughter’s Post Secondary options after she graduates from High School, she found that their options were very limited. After researching and speaking with other parents in the same predicament, she realized that once our children graduate they are on their own, they had nowhere productive to go. Many parents would have to either quit their jobs to stay home or burden their families with the care for their Adult Child. The need for a Day Program was clear and hence the creation of Tania’s Place. Since the doors of Tania's Place opened July 5, 2004, well over 200 families have been helped. Francie only dreamed of such success and now everyone is living it. Tania's Place is proof of families taking control of their children's future and believing in one persons dream to provide our sons and daughters a place to grow as a person and someone that can contribute to their community.
On September 1, 2013 Tania's Place moved to their brand new location at 74 Commercial Ave. Ajax. This facility boasts over 8,000 sq ft of space with two levels and is ideal for growth and progress. Click here to visit our new location.
