Over the past 12 years, we have been pleased to offer our Annual Poinsettia Sale. However, due to unforeseen circumstances this year, we are unable to hold the Poinsettia Fundraiser.

We are tremendously grateful for all of the support we have received over the years, all of which has significantly enriched the lives of people supported by CLGW.

We hope to offer the sale again next year.

Local dignitaries and potential-elects at Cityview Village, getting an update about the Habitat for Humanity Wellington Guelph Dufferin development and partnerships with Community Living Guelph Wellington and the County of Wellington.

Last Thursday, Habitat for Humanity Wellington Dufferin Guelph, the County of Wellington and Community Living Guelph Wellington welcomed local dignitaries and potential elects, as we shared about our housing partnership that will bring opportunities for people with developmental disabilities.

Check out the photos from the announcement, here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1828219103914602&type=1&l=17dad9329b

This partnership is built on a foundation that everyone deserves opportunity and community. Cityview Village, a 28-unit development, is an inclusive community that brings people together to build strength, stability and independence.

“The partnership we have developed with Habitat for Humanity is a significant one, as housing has long been noted as one of the most significant Social Determinants of Health. With this partnership, the People We Support have access to safe, decent and affordable housing that fits their needs and allows them the choice to determine the supports they receive”, says Michelle Noorzad, Habitat Partnership Lead for CLGW.

As we work alongside Habitat, to have people we support here at CLGW move into three different units in the coming months, we’re also excited to learn that other Community Living’s are following this model to help alleviate the burden on the residential waitlist.

Over the course of the next two years, CLGW has committed to volunteering and offering ‘sweat equity’ as part of our partnership. If you’re interested in volunteering, stay tuned to your inboxes or contact Michelle at michellenoorzad@clgw.ca. As opportunities come about, we’ll send those out!

Also stay tuned for a date in November or December, when everyone is invited to celebrate the Home Dedication of these units to the people we support and Community Living Guelph Wellington.
