Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting.

The Italian Canadian HandiCAPABLE Association (ICHA), Windsor and District, is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of the physically and mentally disabled by providing recreational and social activities.

This organization was granted charitable non-profit status on July 22, 1987. The roots of the ICHA were established in 1977 when Peter Novelletto ran onto the soccer field to replace his injured brother. Unfortunately, Peter was escorted off the field because he was mentally disabled. Crushed by the tears of his son, Egidio Novelletto began a soccer program for the mentally disabled at Glengarda. Today, the ICHA is one of the largest organizations of its kind in Ontario, Canada.

Our programs are designed to help foster friendships, sportsmanship and opportunities for persons with disabilities to be included in their community.

The principal purpose of the ICHA is to improve the quality of life for the community by providing social and recreational activities for the mentally and physically disabled individuals in Windsor and Essex County.
