Community Living Haldimand

Transitioning into New Horizons

At Community Living Haldimand, supporting and respecting people and families living with intellectual disabilities is their top priority. With that in mind, Community Living Haldimand is creating “Transitioning into New Horizons,” a weekly activity program for youth living with developmental disabilities and struggling with community inclusion. This peer-run program targets youth between the ages of 17 and 21.

Cheryl Conick, Manager of Supports and Services at Community Living Haldimand says, “With increased supports and services, we hope to build friendships and self-confidence for this high-risk group of young people.”

Youth who have completed the program will be invited to be peer ambassadors, helping others to learn essential life and social skills through small and large group activities and providing one-on-one support.

Youth and families can refer themselves to the program and Community Living Haldimand will work with the Grand Erie District School Board to identify potential attendees. Once a calendar is created, information will be sent through the school and other community groups to ensure those in need are reached.
