Community Concerns for the Medically Fragile (CCMF) was established in 1990 by a group of concerned parents of medically fragile children. Their hope was to build a fully serviced home to care for their children instead of long term care at an institution. Their fully serviced home, Standing Oaks, was built in 2004 after exhaustive fundraising, dedication, and community support. CCMF’s vision is to lead in the awareness of the need of the medically fragile in Sarnia-Lambton while recognizing their uniqueness, their right to dignity, and their quality of life.

In cooperation with Cam-Ron Insurance the Gore Mutual Insurance Company Foundation has supported CCMF for 8 years.
