Community Living Huntsville supports, serves and advocates for approximately 200 children and adults who live with a label of intellectual disability and their families in North Muskoka.
All of our supports for approximately 200 children and adults are based on helping people have a good life, as citizens included in all aspects of our community, the same expectation as you and I. A few ways we do this is by helping people get jobs, or to become volunteers, or connect with clubs or groups.
We help people learn and understand their rights.
The education, awareness and advocacy work of Community Living Huntsville has led to over 100 local businesses and organizations to connect with people, who live with a label of intellectual disability to meaningfully live, work, learn and play in our community.
We need everyone to recognize that people with intellectual disabilities have gifts, talents, abilities and strengths to contribute. We need employers to consider people with intellectual disabilities as viable candidates for jobs.
We need people to extend invitations and welcome people with intellectual disabilities to have presence in ordinary community places, participating as ordinary citizens, allowing people to get to know each other so relationships can develop.
We believe that Community Living Huntsville, along with the Huntsville community can do better to welcome people who live with a label of intellectual disability to be included, valued, contributing members in all facets of community life ensuring that Huntsville is a stronger, richer, more vibrant community.
