We support individuals with developmental disabilities to feel more included in their communities and to have a better quality of life. Supports include ways to get involved in and contribute their strengths and interests in their community, such as:
- Making friends and finding activities and opportunities in community to get involved with
- Improving your skills and developing work experience
- Feeling safer by knowing others in your community
- Making meaningful contributions to your community and finding important roles you can play in your community
Community Inclusion services are delivered by our Community Living Support Workers and can include the following supports:
Employment and Job Readiness:
This service uses a variety of methods to ensure that individuals achieve employment within an integrated setting. This option includes supported employment, customized employment and/or self-employment options. Employment is a first priority for individuals served by CLBC.
This service provides individuals with support to develop skills that are required for healthy, independent living. Support may be provided to individuals through one-on-one or group arrangements. Services are goal-based and time-limited.
This service is designed for individuals who require ongoing support to participate in community in a meaningful way. The service operates outside the individual participants’ homes and is usually offered according to an established schedule that allows individuals to participate on a part-time or full-time basis. This service may have a vocational focus, social/recreational focus or some combination of the two.
