Living Our Dreams: Alternatives to Traditional Residential Options (DVD)
“Living Our Dreams: Alternatives to Traditional Residential Options” is one such initiative. Many people receiving supports for residential services would like to access alternatives to traditional group home options. Staff from CLBC met with each person and their representatives living in a provincially funded group home to discuss alternative solutions.
Living Our Dreams profiled four individuals across the province who have created unique residential options and and as a result are thriving.
