It is with great excitement that the Community Living Mississauga announces the creation of a new a base site – scheduled to open by the end of March 2015.
A great deal of work has gone into surveying and reaching out to individuals and families in order to obtain accurate information based on what individuals goals and needs are. The Community Living Mississauga has been planning in the context of the organization’s Strategic Plan in order to be responsive to individuals and families. To this end, the Board has also been busy advocating for funding resources to support the need for additional residential and day support opportunities.
With the recent government announcement of an $810 million investment over the next three years for the developmental services sector, Community Living Mississauga is now positioned to offer additional supports and services – and, at this time, a new base site location is the priority.
The current base site model at the Watline, Argentia, and Queensway locations has been a stellar model of day support offering a variety of “in-house” and community-based activities. The Argentia and Queensway locations also offer the LINKS initiative. By all accounts this model of support has worked extremely well!
Community Living Mississauga continues to strategize and plan for potential expansion in other areas across the organization based on the goal areas of the Strategic Plan. This is a very exciting and critical time for the developmental services sector.
It is truly time to celebrate the allocation of such needed resources for our community families!
