An evening to remember
with JOSIE PRIMIANI

President - CENTRE OF DREAMS AND HOPES


Josie Primiani, President and founder of the Centre of Dreams and Hopes, shared her life experiences as an English speaking single mother of a special needs child in Montreal’s east-end.

After the birth of her daughter, Sabrina, she encountered the difficult reality of the acute lack of services and support available to her family at that point in time. Determined that her child would not be institutionalized, she along with a group of other mothers of special needs children, founded the East Foundation, whose mandate was to provide services and support to special needs children and their families. This organization, which has since changed its name to Centre of Dreams and Hopes, is celebrating its 16th Anniversary and currently offers a plethora of services such as: Adult Education classes, Respite services, Occupational Therapy and much more. Effective July 1st 2018, the CIUSSS du Nord has agreed to establish and provide an onsite clinic specializing in special needs patients. Josie stands as proof of what strong-willed and determined mothers can accomplish.

The CLDV Women's Speaker Forum was honored to have hosted this fabulous evening highlighting Ms. Primiani’s great accomplishments.
