MEET the BOARD of DIRECTORS
My daughter, Avery, is a resident at Standing Oaks. She is the reason that I became a CCMF Board Member in 2019. I have always been her advocate, and I also wanted to be part of a group that advocates for the medically fragile in the community. All the CCMF Board Members are passionate about their work, and I am proud to be part of that.
Chair - Volunteer
My name is Laura Mele and my passion to work with individuals who have disabilities all started in 1994, when I attended Bridgeview school in Point Edward. I always questioned the teacher when a student was missing, where they were? I went on to University and received my degree in Disability Studies at Ryerson University in Toronto. I currently Chair the Volunteer committee and help out on the fundraising committee. I joined the CCMF board in 2020.

Chair - Support & Needs
Diane & Jim Lambert and Monica & Frank Vautour co-founded CCMF in 1989. Diane and Monica spent many hours in front of a typewriter developing the foundation of CCMF. Standing Oaks was our vision and it became the vision of CCMF’s families as they all joined in. CCMF is a tight-knit family organization that Diane is so proud of. Diane has held the position of President, Secretary and Supports & Needs Committee Chair over the years.
