Housing Initiatives

The Saskatchewan Association for Community Living (SACL) supports individuals and families to have choice and empowerment in housing. People with disabilities must have the opportunity to live independently in typical homes, in typical neighbourhoods, with access to the needed supports and resources to do so successfully.

In 2011 the SACL started to formally engage in housing initiatives across the province with two goals:

  1. Increase the amount of housing available to people with intellectual disabilities.
  2. Support the creation of innovative housing solutions for people with intellectual disabilities.

To achieve these goals the SACL is engaging in Research, Networking, Systemic Advocacy, and Community Development.

It is never too early to begin planning for your home. We strongly encourage you to begin planning at 15 – 16 years of age because many existing housing options have multi-year waitlists, and it can take years to develop new options that will suit your needs. The more time there is, the better the planning can be.

And remember, it is never too late. As we age, grow and change as individuals, our housing needs change. If you are wanting something different than what you currently have, there are always opportunities to plan for change.

The SACL can assist. Contact us any time to help you to articulate what you want in your home. We want to hear your hopes, dreams and aspirations, and then to help you to put together a housing plan and a proposal if it is appropriate.

We want to assist you in developing a home that is safe, secure, affordable, and attainable; while ensuring that you have access to the needed resources to support you to have a successful home of your choice, in a community of your choice.

If you would like to learn more about what the SACL is doing or have any questions please contact Nicholas Fraser  (306) 955-3344 ext. 124.
