The name "Community Living" reflects the growing understanding that the right to live a fully integrated life within the community belongs to all. It reflects the aspirations of persons with developmental disabilities to be included in the fabric of community life.
The Association is a non-profit charitable organization governed by a Board of Directors who are elected by the membership of our association. We serve over 500 individuals with disabilities and employ some 200 staff who work at various program sites and locations throughout Prince Edward County. Our primary funding sources are the Ontario Ministry of Community, Family, and Children's Services and our municipality. In order to provide much-needed service and support to areas of the organization which are not funded through the government or which have been affected by recent cutbacks, the Association relies on local fundraising initiatives and donations from individuals and community organizations.
