Community Living Temiskaming South provides services and supports to over 200 individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
Founded in 1959 by a group of parents concerned with the lack of services available locally, the Association’s first endeavour was to establish a school for their children.
Recognized as a 'non-profit charitable organization', Community Living Temiskaming South is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Our team of dedicated employees are able to provide services thanks to subsidized funding by the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services. Other sources of revenue include: the District of Timiskaming Social Services Administration Board, room and board paid by the individuals residing in our group homes, our annual Walkathon fundraiser, as well as donations and bequests.
Community Living Temiskaming South continues to grow and to adapt.
We are committed to support Individuals with Developmental Disabilities to reach their goals and to live a life of their choosing.
Our History has been one of constant progress as shown through our many Milestones.
We have come so far
and as our knowledge grew and ideas evolved we appreciate a look back on a History that includes so many inspirational community leaders and volunteers.
Our Vision continues to evolve as the subject of respectful, appropriate care for the members of our community.
We have redefined "respect" in terms
of training and work programs and in many other aspects of daily living.
