History Biographical
The story of Tamir begins in 1980 with Lily and Jerry Penso. The Pensos were convinced that their developmentally delayed son, Michael, who was then 19, needed his own place to live. At the time, the waiting list for ODAMR group homes in Ottawa was 100 other people. Moreover, while these homes might have provided the support that Michael needed, they did not offer the Jewish cultural environment the Pensos were seeking. The Pensos placed ads in the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin and Canadian Jewish News seeking out families of developmentally delayed adults interested in the establishment of a Jewish group home in Ottawa. There was no response. Undaunted, the Pensos made a number of personal phone calls. In October 1980, several local families, including the Pensos, met with Elaine Rabin, Executive Director, Jewish Social Services Agency, Jacquelin Holzman, with The Social Planning Council, and Noreen Bosloy, Special Needs Coordinator of the Ottawa and District Association for the Mentally Retarded (ODAMR), to discuss the need and possibility of establishing a supervised group home setting for developmentally handicapped young adults in a Jewish environment. Out-of-town institutions were also contacted for information and assistance, including Reena in Toronto and the Shalom Residence in Winnipeg. In addition to Sandy Keshen, Rabbi Kelman of Reena was very helpful and made a special trip to Ottawa to offer encouragement. This led to future meetings with the Coordinator of Services for the Developmentally Handicapped in the Ministry of Community and Social Services, then known as COMSOC. While the institutions and the Ministry were supportive, much hard work, perseverance and faith would be required before concrete results would be seen as the bureaucratic process would prove to be very slow. Two major factors would ultimately prove to be the key to Tamir’s success – the support of Jacquelin Holzman with the Social Planning Council and the backing of the Ottawa Jewish community. The first open community meeting was held in October 1981. This was well attended. Community support was strong from the beginning and continues to this day. The Foundation was incorporated in December 1981 with 18 members on the first interim Board of Directors. Mark Max prepared the original logo and information flyer. The first By-Laws were prepared with the assistance of Martin Black of Goldberg Shinder. Charitable status was granted shortly after incorporation which allowed Tamir to issue receipts for income tax purposes. An initial membership drive, held in the fall of 1981, brought in 215 members. Donor cards were introduced. Following a study of draft proposals of other similar organizations, Tamir submitted a two phase proposal to the Ministry of Community and Social Services. Rabbi Bulka helped to draft the Jewish guidelines for the proposal. The first phase called for a cooperative house for four moderately retarded trainable Jewish young adults who would share household duties and develop their individual potentials to cope with everyday life skills in a planned social atmosphere, as well as a relief bed for use in family crisis situations or to allow parents to enjoy an occasional holiday. A second larger home would accommodate six people, selected from private homes and institutions, with a greater degree of retardation, who would require more supervision. The Ministry agreed, in principle, to grant 80% of the required capital cost and operating expenses with the remainder to come from clients' pensions and community fundraising, provided that 50% of the clients came from institutions approved unanimously by the Ontario government's local Mental Retardation Advisory Committee of COMSOC. In those years, the province was planning to close several institutions in Ontario and anxious to transfer patients into community sponsored homes. Accordingly, Tamir contacted the Rideau Regional Home in Smiths Falls and determined that there were 18 Jewish residents. Tamir maintained close contact with Rideau Regional in the following years. In March 1982, Tamir's proposal was approved for future funding from the Ministry by the local Advisory Committee of COMSOC with still no indication of when the money would actually be granted. Due to cutbacks there was little likelihood of receiving funding in 1982. Through the efforts of Jacquelin Holzman, Tamir was placed on a waiting list. Tamir’s efforts continued. The homes were to be modelled after the Reena Foundation's group homes in Toronto. In addition to establishing residences, a second goal of the Foundation was to develop a self-help group to support families and to assist them to cope with the realization that they had a developmentally delayed handicapped child, to accept the limitations while recognizing the potential of the individual and to prepare for the transition from family to group home. Work continued on this initiative as well. In May 1982 Tamir was recognized as a Jewish Agency under the Vaad and received various bequests from Endowment Funds and through Jewish service organizations. While awaiting government funding, a number of Board Committees were established to work on capital and operating budgets, admission criteria, the preparation of a policy manual, homes, furnishings and future fundraising. By 1985 there was still no indication as to when government money would actually be granted and received; however, given the critical need, the Board made the decision to proceed. The support and generosity of the Ottawa Jewish community and the receipts from a successful fundraising initiative in June - $60,000 for start-up costs was raised at a L’Chaim Cocktail Party- allowed for the opening of the first group home. In 1987, a presentation was made to the Ottawa Jewish Community Council and Tamir was recognized as a beneficiary agency under the then Vaad Ha'Ir. The Vaad continued to assist Tamir until government funding was obtained in 1992. Tamir continued to receive funds through various bequests from Endowment Funds.
