This year we lost a member of our Community of Hearts family. Doug Brown of Paragon Kitchens left us far too early and although our hearts are heavy, we will always have his smiling face and twinkle of his eye in our hearts and memories.
Doug, his wife Mary and the entire Brown family, have been strong supporters of Community of Hearts over the past several years. They have supported Community of Hearts not only as corporate sponsors, but as individual donors and great friends.

In Doug’s honour, the Brown family along with Paragon Kitchens has started the Douglas Brown Memorial Fund for individuals who would like to attend Community of Hearts’ programs but do not have the funding to do so.

Doug was known in our community for his generosity, friendship, and dedication to his loved ones. In establishing this scholarship, Doug’s family and friends wish to recognize his dedication to wellness, community connection and the value of lifelong learning for youth and adults with developmental exceptionalities. We will miss you Doug and hope to honour you through this program. For more information or to support The Doug Brown Memorial Fund please contact us at [email protected]
