Reena Foundation
Located at 1 Promenade Circle, Suite 308, Thornhill, Ontario, L4J 4P8. Reena Foundation’s goal is to inspire communities to invest in a better quality of life for people with developmental disabilities

Reena Foundation is the fundraising arm of Reena – a non-profit social service agency dedicated to helping children, adults and senior citizens with developmental disabilities to realize their full potential and to become integrated into the mainstream of society.

Reena was established in 1973 by parents of children with developmental disabilities, as a practical alternative to institutions. Reena strives to create and maintain an environment that respects and promotes dignity, individuality, independence and freedom of choice.

In 1977, Reena began receiving funding from the Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services and, since that time, has grown to now provide support for close to 1,000 adults and children with developmental disabilities and their families through a variety of programs.
