Overview

Community Living is something many of us experience naturally, as part of our daily lives. We live in communities … our children go to neighbourhood schools … we have the opportunity to work at real jobs for real pay.

Community Living is part of our name – Community Living Guelph Wellington. We are a not for profit service agency that provides support and assistance to people who have an intellectual disability and reside in Wellington County. We support people who have an intellectual disability as they live, learn, work, and experience all aspects of living in their community.

Community Living Guelph Wellington also works hard to bring people and communities together. We work to help the community to develop its capacity to welcome and support people who have not always had the same opportunities as the rest of us to participate in community life in meaningful, productive ways.

Community Living Guelph Wellington was founded in 1955 by parents of children with an intellectual disability and concerned citizens. Since its inception, this organization has expanded from a group providing assessment, training and education to the pre-school child to a dynamic agency that provides services to people with an intellectual disability throughout their entire adult life span.

The mission of Community Living Guelph Wellington is to advocate for, promote, and facilitate the full participation, inclusion and empowerment of people who have an intellectual disability.”
