Dan's Story - Gift of Hope

Bonny Lea Farm has been giving hope to people living with disabilities since 1973.

Hope for a home. 
Hope for meaningful work.
Hope for a welcoming community.
Hope for independence.
Hope for new friendships.


When you support Bonny Lea Farm you help us keep that hope alive.

Our founders had a vision for people who live with the everyday challenges of a disability – hope for a fulfilling life with opportunities to learn, grow and succeed. We still have that vision and hope you do too.

You could change lives.

I would like to introduce you to Dan. In early 2018, he and his Mom came to Bonny Lea Farm for a visit.

They hoped to find a place where Dan would feel at home. They hoped to find a place where Dan could learn and grow. They hoped to find a community that would engage and empower him.

Today, he is living in one of our group homes with four other participants. He is learning new life skills, making decisions and gaining independence. He is also making friends. His personality and sense of humour are enjoyed by his housemates and staff.

Dan adjusted to the new work routine in our Transition Program. This provided him with easy access to our snoezelen room for relaxation, an introduction to the work of each of our social enterprises, and a quieter setting to help make the transition from home and school to work a successful one! He now participates in the Workshop work crew.

We know there is a bright future for Dan here at Bonny Lea Farm and we are thrilled to be able to offer him this opportunity.

You can be a part of making Bonny Lea Farm a place where hope is born and dreams come true. 
We estimate that since 1973, we have given hope to over 300 people living with a disability in our residential, vocational and enhanced programs. Made possible by supporters like you.

Help us continue to be a place of hope. Hope for today. Hope for tomorrow. Hope for the future.
