Kyle’s Story

Kyle Girardin

If the eyes are truly the mirrors of the soul than that explains why you can see so much hope through the eyes of Kyle Girardin. Hope for a new start, a new beginning became reality for Kyle after moving to a new home in LaSalle he shares with three other men.

Despite his struggle at times with diabetes, it hasn’t slowed him down from actively participating in Special Olympics as a member of the LaSalle Spirit Club, where he has won numerous medals in baseball and basketball.

As a part-time employee as a cleaner at the arena that is home to the Ontario Hockey League Windsor Spitfires, Kyle is close to a sport he loves and in a job that offers him some independence. But, after securing several bursaries and attending woodworking classes at St. Clair College, Kyle hopes to one-day make a living by building things with wood. ” I like to build with wood. In the future, I’d like to go back to school and become a Carpenter, but for now I’ll keep fixing things around the house.”

In the meantime, Kyle has built a solid foundation, working, playing and living in a community he enjoys, with hopes for an even brighter future.
