Serving the
Disability Community

"Everybody comes to a point in their life when they want to quit, but it's what you do at that moment that determines who you are."
~ David Goggins

 

Can you imagine being forced to be live in a locked unit in a psychiatric hospital even though you neither wanted nor needed to stay in the hospital, let alone in a locked unit?

Can you imagine your feelings if you were  repeatedly told that you would be found a home in the community but it never happened?

I can and it makes me shudder.

Listen to my interview on CBC’s Main Street program concerning the current Human Rights claim against the Province with respect to housing for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
