Message from the Interim CEO
As we prepare for the holiday season, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the past year and focus on the future. 2011 has been a year of change and transition for CLBC, yet through it all our mission remains very much the same: to respond to the needs and the goals of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, through a person-centred approach.
In October, I became the Interim CEO of CLBC. I am honoured to have been asked by the Board of Directors to keep the organization moving forward and focused on doing the right thing for the individuals and families we serve.
In this edition, we share stories of employment and volunteerism. These stories highlight how through community service and meaningful work, individuals can broaden their personal support networks and have stronger ties in the community.
CLBC supports more than 13,000 adults with developmental disabilities to be included in community as full citizens and to be as independent as possible. We are determined to build on the progress we have made, learning from our successes and from the mistakes we have made. CLBC will move forward, recommitted to ensuring that the individuals and families we serve are our first priority.
Happy holidays to everyone and a very happy and peaceful New Year.
