Community Living Victoria
This month OneAbility is putting the spotlight on one of our members who has been providing outstanding resources in the community, Community Living Victoria.
On December 16, 1955, a group of dedicated parents founded what is now called Community Living Victoria (CLV).Today, as the largest non-profit community living service provider on Vancouver Island, CLV provides a range of support services to children, youth and adults with intellectual disabilities and their families.
One of the many support programs is Autism Services. This program was developed for children and youth aged 6 to 18 who live with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This community-based service includes 1:1 behaviour intervention, weekly after school social skills groups, and school break camps.
Youth who attend the services often form strong bonds with each other and find the space provided is a chance to be accepted for who they are. This year has been an opportunity for many of the youth supported to reconnect with each other in person and the reunions have been amazing to watch. With restrictions lifting we are excited to see both new and returning youth enjoy summer camp activities such as swimming, touring local museums and tourist attractions, canoeing and more.
If you know a youth that lives with ASD, and they are looking for a place to connect with peers and find acceptance, please contact the Program Coordinator, Rachel Knoop. Rachel can be reached at email@example.com or 250-477-7231 ext 237
