Program Philosophy

The Community Inclusion (CI) Program assists adults with developmental disabilities to join community-based group activities or one-on-one life skill based activities. We support them to become part of their communities and fade out our services as they become an independent member of their chosen group or activity. Our Community Inclusion workers are available throughout Metro Vancouver from Langley to the North Shore.

  • Adaptive and employment-based skill development and assistance

  • Community integration

  • Community safety and self-help skills
