Recommendation Letter for Kawartha Participation Projects

To whom it may concern:

It is with deep respect and admiration I write this letter in recognition of Kawartha Participation Projects. Established in 1978, Kawartha Participation Projects is a non-profit organization that provides self-directed, complex care and affordable housing for people with diverse need to help them live independently in their homes and achieve their goals.

Kawartha Participation Projects was formed in response to a lack of adequate facilities for people living with a disability. At the time, it simply endeavored to provide accessible housing and support services. By 1983, it had successfully established supportive housing units in various apartment complexes. In 1999, the KPP Foundation was incorporated as a non-profit fundraising partner dedicated to raising funds to assist people with physical disabilities in the four counties of Haliburton, Northumberland, Peterborough and the City of Kawartha Lakes.

Today, Kawartha Participation Projects has seven different supportive housing locations ranging from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom townhouses. Its attendant outreach services provide personal and homemaking supports in the home on a regularly scheduled basis and in permanent residential settings.

On top of providing essential support and service to people living with physical disabilities, Kawartha Participation Projects also provides property management services to everyone from non-profits and co-operatives to condominiums through its property management department, as well as affordable market rents to those who qualify.

Kawartha Participation Projects is an important organization that provides vital services and support to people living with physical disabilities. I commend Kawartha Participation Projects, its staff and volunteers and support them wholeheartedly as they work to make a difference in the lives of countless individuals and families by helping to create communities that are caring, inclusive and accessible.
