In 1960, our founding parent dreamed that her daughter would live in an inclusive community at a time when doctors recommended provincial institutions. We believe, as our founder did, that people with intellectual disabilities have the right to live in and participate in their community. The year 2009, in fact, saw the closure of the last of the provincial institutions.
2010 brings our 50th Anniversary…a milestone marker of providing half a century of quality support! We also are proud to have achieved of a decade of maintaining non-mandated CQL accreditation at the highest possible level. Empowered by our mission statement “To provide support and services to people that promote opportunities for personal growth within their community”, we have expanded services across our region. Our Board of Directors has committed to fulfill this mission without geographical boundaries for all who request services from our agency.
We have an exciting lineup of 50th Anniversary Events planned including a formal Gala booked for April 30/10 at the Campbellford Curling Club. Firm dates for some of our festivities are yet to be determined…please keep an eye on our website for more details.
