Aspire is a charitable organization run by a team of caring and passionate professionals who work with families, and the local community, to provide services to children with special needs.

We have been providing an understanding, supportive and knowledgeable experience for families who have children with special needs since 1985. Now, we are the only organization in our region that combines all our professionals under one roof, making it easier for families to coordinate services. Working closely with other community organizations, our teams provide services in homes, in schools and on-site.

Aspire Special Need Resource Centre provides the supportive environment where our community, families and children can work together to discover potential. We are here to provide hope, in a holistic, optimistic, passionate and empathetic way.


A charitable organization providing hope to children with special needs, the families who love them and the communities that care for them.


Working together to discover potential.


We were born from the concern, compassion and commitment of a group of parents and professionals who refused to believe that their special children couldn’t have their needs better served and their potential more effectively reached.

From our earliest days gathered at a kitchen table, we have been driven by passion, vision and a belief that, for advancement to occur in the service delivery for children with special needs, change has to be embedded in our very approach to doing business.

We believe that every child is an individual and that innovation and integration is integral to service delivery. We believe that families are the foundation stone of all thriving children and we invest our energy and passion in supporting the entire family unit.

We believe that, just as children aren’t one dimensional, neither are their needs and, as such, we view each case through a holistic lens. Just as community teamwork brought us together, so too does teamwork now define our approach to care. From a small, passionate group to a large, busy organization, we foster and honour the relationships that give us strength, fuel our optimism and move us forward.
