Our Mission Statement
“To support programs that help people with intellectual disabilities to gain contributive and valued roles in society through teaching and guidance, and encouraging independence and integration into the community, thereby maximizing their quality of life.”
We are dedicated to helping adults living with an intellectual disability meet the challenges of their environment. Our goal is to enable those individuals to live their lives with a sense of fulfillment by encouraging their growth and development to the greatest potential, and we achieve this goal through supporting a variety of programs and services. To that end, we work together with others who share our mission and vision.
Versatech Charitable Foundation Inc. responds to the needs of an expanding and changing population, and regularly explores ways to fund quality services and opportunities to enrich life skills training and advancement. We continually endeavor to expand our capacity to support opportunities and services that promote growth and development, to people with intellectual disabilities.
Our only source of funds is donations or gifts from you. Please donate now!
Today, society faces multiple challenges in its service to adults living with an intellectual disability:
‒ People with lifelong disabilities, such as those with Down syndrome, cerebral palsy or post polio syndrome, may experience premature signs of ageing, and have an increased risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, or marked physical decline as early as their 40s
‒ There is a rise in the number of people with physical and emotional needs brought on by the aging process (71.65% over 40 years of age)
‒ There is more demand to ensure the retention of the literacy and numeracy skills acquired in the educational system
‒ Organizations need the equipment and tools to support the current and changing needs and requirements of their clients

What We Do
Our mandate is to provide support to services that will enable adults living with an intellectual disability to participate in meaningful activities that encourage them to reach their full potential. Our planning ensures that a solid foundation for providing funds is established, and provides opportunities for:
‒ consultations regarding the needs of the community
‒ capacity to promote development and awareness of the programs
‒ timing and delivery of the programs
‒ staffing and training activities for ultimate production
‒ Infrastructure and capacity development for environmental relevance
The needs of adults living with an intellectual disability dictate our overall direction in selecting the programs to support. However, requirements change, and the Foundation regularly reviews and changes or improves its support to those programs, in keeping with its mandate to ensure maximum growth and development of the individual.
