Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta supports children who are living with disabilities and specialized needs in our communities.
Through education, advocacy, direct support and community outreach, we support children who are facing physical, developmental, emotional or learning challenges and are dedicated to advancing the health, quality of life and enrichment of children living with specialized requirements and needs.
The initiatives that we engage in support building inclusive and healthy communities for children living with specialized needs to gain greater independence and positive life experiences.
Vision: Variety Alberta enables all children living with specialized needs to be an active part of their community.
Mission: Through community initiatives, partnerships and education, Variety Alberta enables inclusion, wellness and independence for children who are facing physical, developmental, emotional or learning challenges.
We believe that:
- Barriers can be removed through education, increased awareness and creating environments of acceptance, understanding, and celebration of differences;
- Every child has the right to be safe, to be healthy and to play so to experience the simple pleasures of childhood; and
- We can have an inclusive and accessible Alberta for children who are living with disabilities and specialized needs.
