Get A Glimpse Through Our Impact
A community is an ecosystem where diversity is celebrated, and people have their needs met while meeting the needs of others. in this manner, it is a living entity - in constant growth and capable of nourishing future generations.
TAKE A LOOK INSIDE OUR ECOSYSTEM & WHAT GREW THIS YEAR
We are committed to transitioning from a model of seeking donor support via fundraising, to a model
in which our work becomes fully funded via revenue from social enterprises. With a location that belongs to the organization and enough funding to maintain regular staff, our programs and services will be able to achieve stability and longevity.
Expand our social enterprises to the level at which they can become our main source of financial income, eliminating the heavy reliance on annual fundraising.
Our programs and services can continue to be offered, without threat of interruption, by a paid team of professional staff.

Le Centre Educatif Floraison is one of our most successful projects to date.
Licensed by the Ministry of Education, the daycare program delivers the Ontario child development curriculum with a holistic approach, tailoring the curriculum to each child's needs.
The daycare project aligns with the Rhoda's mission to build a thriving community that offers support, belonging, and connection to all. We consider the daycare an important extension of our commitment to children and families and a means of firmly rooting programming for children into a long-term, self-sustaining service.
As such, the daycare is a vital and meaningful addition to the ecosystem of the Rhoda Foundation.
With the completion of Phase 2 of the Daycare, and with full capacity enrolment, we will have enough income to be completely financially independent and never have to ask for donations again.
There is a great need for daycare facilities in Ottawa. The waiting list for Phase 2 is already full. Our model is unique and honours the child with care, attention, and opportunities to learn.
Parents can be secure in the knowledge that their children are getting the best early childhood education possible.
Phase II is the Game Changer

"The Rhoda is where I want to be at every moment.
It is where I reconnected with God and started my lifelong journey thanks to the community, the atmosphere, and the classes. It is where I can be myself because there is truly 0% judgment and 100% love.
The Rhoda has positively affected my life
and the lives of thousands, like no other, and could bring the same or much more to the lives of millions."
