OUR MANDATE

THE NIAGARA AMPUTEE ASSOCIATION (NAA)

To promote the quality care, dignity, independence and reintegration of amputees within their community. To distribute information to the general public, amputees and their families in order to educate them to: the needs of amputees, their families, friends and associates; the availability of medical, social, emotional, financial and legal resources which would meet their special needs; to accept donations, gifts, legacies and bequests; to cooperate with other organizations whether incorporated or not which have objects similar to those of the Niagara Amputee Association. As a non-profit organization, we operate solely based on our volunteer core. Our mission is to provide support and education to amputees within the Niagara Region.  We offer hospital visitations, peer counseling and education, to individuals who have had an amputation and to their families.

OUR HISTORY

In 1984 Rob Gabourie, the prosthetist at Niagara Prosthetics, approached several clients asking if they were interested in being part of a support group for amputees. We received training for visitation at the Shaver Hospital under the direction of Brenda Fretz(Ingram) and social worker Nasim Banu(Ahmed) The group began providing hospital visitations and monthly meetings on May 18, 1984. In 1990, The Niagara Amputee Association received their registered charitable number.
