Welcome To Community Living ~ Fort Erie

Community Living ~ Fort Erie is a non-profit organization with 60 years experience providing advocacy for, and support to, individuals who have intellectual challenges, and their families.

Our name reflects the growing understanding that all people deserve the opportunity to be fully included in the community. We are experts in working with the community to strengthen its natural capacity to welcome and support people who have intellectual challenges so that they are included in all aspects of the community.

Our Mission

Community Living ~ Fort Erie exists to promote inclusion and to ensure people with intellectual challenges have their rights and privileges upheld.

Our Vision

An Inclusive Community That Only Sees Abilities.

“Inclusion . . . Not Just A Right . . . The Right Thing To Do”


Our work has moved well beyond the right to an education. We now work with communities to include people who have an intellectual disability in all aspects of community life.

 

Community Living ~ Fort Erie is committed to providing the best possible resources to minimize accessibility barriers.

  • Structural barriers
