CardSharks+: Adult Day Services Work Alternatives

CardSharks+ began in 1995 as a weekly craft program, created in response to requests from individuals who wanted to develop and showcase their creativity. Today, CardSharks+ products include beautiful handcrafted all occasion and holiday greeting cards, as well as a line of jewelry. With money generated from the sale of products, participants are able to cover the cost of materials as well as receive some financial compensation for their work. This valuable program provides a work alternative for many individuals who face significant barriers in other employment settings due to their disability.


All Adult Day Service programs require registration. Please contact the CHIRS Intake Department to register. Participants accessing Adult Day Service programs need to be independent for all transportation and personal support requirements, as one to one assistance is not available. Participants who require additional support are welcome to bring a family member or attendant. Please note that programs may be added or changed in response to participant feedback.

CardSharks+ Cards are original hand crafted works of art created by people whose lives have been altered by brain injury.  This initiative is part of the Volunteer Services of Community Head Injury Resource Services (CHIRS). 

All cards are for available for purchase; with 100% of the proceeds from sales going right back into the operation of the program.

Cards are available in packages of 5 for $10.00 (plus shipping and handling $10.00 Canada Post Express).
*** Extra charge may apply for custom orders

Also available - Holiday Gift Tags in assorted packages 10 for $5.00

Each year participants design and hand craft thousands of exclusive holiday cards for Thomson Rogers Personal Injury Lawyers http://www.thomsonrogers.com/ and Morrison Brown Sosnovitch Business Lawyers http://www.businesslawyers.com/, which are sent to their valued clients and professional partners each year.
