The Bob Rumball Foundation for the Deaf helps fund services, programs and activities that provide a higher quality of life and build a better future for Deaf and hard of hearing children, youth, adults and seniors, as well as individuals with developmental disabilities.
Under the Rumball umbrella, we have agencies, programs and services across the Province.
- The Bob Rumball Canadian Centre of Excellence for the Deaf is located in Toronto and Milton. These locations offer residential care or semi-independent living for adults with developmental disabilities, seniors services, ASL instructional programs, Adult Education for newcomers to Canada, and an EarlyOn Centre for children from birth to age 6. We also offer mental health services for youth and their families which can be accessed virtually across the Province, called “PAH!”
- The Bob Rumball Camp of the Deaf is located just south of Parry Sound, which offers accessible, recreational opportunities for Deaf and hard of hearing youth and their families.
- The Bob Rumball Home for the Deaf is located in Barrie and offers long-term care for Deaf and hearing Seniors as they live out their final days in a unique environment, which promotes and preserves Deaf culture, language and heritage, and prevents isolation of Deaf seniors.
Each program’s needs are unique, making Rumball an agency that is often in need of support for all ages and stages.
