Some people think their name "Community Living" has little meaning. It is different, they admit. But after you read about what they do, they think you will agree that their name tells exactly what they're all about. And they hope you will agree that not only their name, but the work that they  do and the goals that they  have, make perfect sense. Community Living is something most of us experience naturally, as part of their daily lives. They live in communities, their children go to neighbourhood schools, they have the opportunity to work at real jobs for real pay and contribute as productive citizens. For many people who have intellectual (or developmental) disabilities, community living is a dream, an objective yet to be realized. Some people may live at home but with little connection with the community around them. As children they may be in segregated classrooms in schools far away from neighbourhood children. As adults, they are largely excluded from the workforce. At all ages, many face physical and social barriers that keep them from participating in the social, recreational and economic world around them. They support individuals as they develop their capacity to live, learn, work and participate in all aspects of living in the community. They help the community develop its capacity to welcome and support people who have not always had the same opportunities as the rest of us to participate in community life in meaningful, productive ways. In both direct and indirect ways, supporting people to contribute and participate makes good economic sense, and produces communities that are vibrant and strong.
