Community Living London Launches $500,000 Capital Campaign to Give More People with Developmental Disabilities a ‘Forever Home’.

Imagine being a parent who has a child and you can no longer safely support your child at home…

Imagine being forced to place your child in a psychiatric facility…

Imagine visiting your child and that child asks you to come home and you tell them they can’t…

Imagine Now…’Our Forever Home’

Community Living London is really excited to announce that we have recently purchased a new home in the city of London, with funds donated to us by our generous donors. This home will provide support to 5 people, both youth and adults, in individualized suites, each containing a bedroom, kitchenette, living room and direct access to a fenced yard.

You may not be aware, but there are many people waiting for supports who have extraordinary behavioural support and clinical needs.  These people often end up residing in hospital or other locked facilities, waiting for the right community agency to come forward with a plan.  Given these unique needs, a typical home, in a typical neighbourhood, is not always the correct solution.  Therefore, we have bought a home within the city limits with a large property.

We have been looking for some time for the “right” place, and are thrilled that we were successful in finding this home.

Beginning November 1st, we will be launching a Capital Campaign to assist in completing the renovations required to create individual spaces for the people who will reside in the home, and will be sharing stories of their challenges and of course, most importantly, their successes.
