Community Living Campbellford Brighton, Inspiring Possibilities for People with Intellectual Disabilities

Who We Are

Home > Who We Are

In 1960, Community Living Campbellford/Brighton’s founding parent dreamed that her daughter would live in an inclusive community at a time when doctors recommended provincial institutions. We believe, as Mary Cook did, that people with intellectual disabilities have the right to live in and participate in their community.

We believe that people with intellectual disabilities have the right to live in and participate in their community.

In 2016, Community Living Campbellford/Brighton enters our 56th year of providing quality support and services to people with intellectual disabilities while at the same time, ensuring the continuance of maintaining non-mandated accreditation with the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL) at the highest possible level. Although Accreditation is not yet mandatory in Ontario, Community Living Campbellford/Brighton chooses to have an independent body measure the quality of its support because they want to continually enhance services.

The organization has been accredited by CQL at the highest level possible since 2000. Community Living Campbellford/Brighton is proud of their commendable awards history with the Donner Canadian Foundation. The Donner Awards were Canada’s largest and most prestigious awards program for non-profit organizations from 1998 to 2014. In this timeframe, Community Living Campbellford/Brighton was thrilled to be named ‘Category Finalist’ eight times in the disability service category and ’Category Award’ winner six times. Highlighting this richly steeped history was the honour of receiving the William H. Donner Award for the prestigious ‘Overall Excellence in the Delivery of Social Services’ three times (twice jointly) and the “Peter F. Drucker Award” recognizing a “Consistent Record of Excellence” in 2009.

Help inspire new possibilities and make a difference today.
