Agency Name: Tetra Society of North America – Lethbridge Chapter
The Tetra Society of North America is a non-profit, founded in 1987 in Vancouver, BC that recruits skilled volunteers to create customized assistive devices for people with specific needs that cannot be met by commercial items. Everything created through Tetra is unique, custom made for one person’s particular needs by volunteers within the client’s own community. Tetra and its volunteers have completed thousands of assistive devices that help in reducing or overcoming barriers. They are dedicated to assisting people with disabilities to achieve an independent and fulfilling life, one assistive device at a time. The Tetra Society of North America operates 45 chapters across Canada and the United States.
How The Community Can Help:
How the community can help:
The Tetra Society is continually recruiting volunteers in every community across Canada and the United States. The organization needs ingenious people willing to take on new challenges. Technical volunteers do not have to be engineers, just practical-minded people with a mechanical aptitude. Ideally they would like to have a mix of skills where some volunteers might be woodworkers and others might be experts in metalwork or fiberglass.
