Corporate Giving Our Community Impact

OUR COMMUNITY IMPACT

Caesars Windsor is proud to invest in local non-profit organizations to enrich the community where we do business, where we live and where we play.

OUR HEROS

We believe that donating our time, talent and resources are equally important. Our HERO (Helping Employees Reach Out) employee volunteer program enables, encourages and empowers employees to be leaders in our community by embodying the spirit of People, Planet, Play. We are continually overwhelmed by the passion, dedication and generosity of our employee HEROs. Each year our HEROs give thousands of hours volunteering in our community to help improve the lives of others.

Caesars Windsor Corporate Giving Art Therapy Program

Seniors

Alzheimer Society Windsor-Essex – Art Therapy Program  

For many, painting is a relaxing hobby. For individuals with Alzheimer’s, it can be therapeutic.  The Creative Art Expression program at the Alzheimer Society of Windsor-Essex provides art therapy to help stimulate the mind of a person with dementia.   

Through art, participants are able to enhance their communication skills, express themselves in a creative manner and socialize with others also living with the disease. “It reduces stress and anxiety,” said Sarah Overton, Education and Support Coordinator. “It also helps with isolation. Often people are withdrawn after a dementia diagnosis because they are afraid to go out or say something wrong. This program gives them a safe social opportunity.”

In Windsor-Essex County 7,500 people have been diagnosed with dementia.  Thanks to a donation from Caesars Windsor Cares, the Alzheimer Society is able to deliver this program, benefitting those living with the disease, and their care partners.

Caesars Windsor Harmony In Action Participation Park

Health & Wellness

Harmony in Action – Participation Park

Playgrounds bring images of a happy, carefree environment and outdoor play develops physical, social and cognitive skills.  A space for everyone, regardless of ability, was the vision Harmony in Action had for their clients.  With a donation from Caesars Windsor Cares, their dream became a reality with an inclusive playground right in their backyard.

Participation Park is an exciting, innovative, fully accessible and inclusive environment.  It is the perfect place for persons with special needs, their families, friends and the community to play, learn and adventure together.  The new playground area is also therapeutic.  The Life Trail Exercise equipment allows users to exercise through play to gain muscles, strength and confidence.  

Caesars Windsor Corporate Giving Womens Shelter

Community Enrichment

Downtown Mission - Women’s Dormitory

Living on the street is highly dangerous, especially for women.  For years their only option was to sleep on floor mats at the Downtown Mission shelter, separated from others with merely a row of chairs.  Now with a donation from Caesars Windsor Cares, a 10-bed Downtown Mission Women’s Dormitory gives homeless women a space of their own.  Since it opened in 2016, over 300 women have access to a warm, safe, compassionate and secure atmosphere offered.   

Beyond having a bed to sleep, they also have access to the mission’s services and programs, which carry a women-centered approach. The Cares donation also enabled them to extend programming to promote self-respect, self-love and self-care.  Partnering with community organizations, they now offer these successful programs to Canadian Mental Health Association, Hiatus House and Windsor Youth Centre.

Caesars Windsor Corporate Giving Devonwood Nature Trail

CodeGreen

Essex Region Conservation Authority – Devonwood Conservation Area Nature Trail

The Caesars Windsor Nature Trail officially opened at Devonwood Conservation Area this fall thanks to a generous donation investment from Caesars Windsor Cares

The 4.5 kilometre trail has been completely resurfaced to improve safety, accessibility and natural connections at Windsor’s only Conservation Area and urban forest. In addition to the overhauled trails, benches have been rebuilt, the parking lot improved and a safety light added making it an inviting destination to enjoy the outdoors on foot or bike. Located on Division Road just north of Cabana, it is believed that no other forest in Canada supports a greater diversity of oak trees.
