RENOVATED SPIRITWOOD DAY PROGRAM OPENS

Released on April 13, 2018

Premier Scott Moe joined community members, day program clients and dignitaries in Spiritwood to celebrate the grand reopening of Prairie Community Endeavours’ Centre Based Day Program.

“The Ministry of Social Services funds 25 community-based organizations that serve northern communities, providing quality day programs, group homes and other services for people with intellectual disabilities,” Moe said.  “Community-based organizations, like Prairie Community Endeavours, play a valuable role in creating inclusive communities in Saskatchewan.”

The Government of Saskatchewan provided $100,000 for the project, on top of $398,000 in annual funding.  Prairie Community Endeavours supports individuals through day programming and a group living home for four people.  There are six people currently attending this day program.  With the renovations, they can now support up to ten people.

“Participants from the area can remain close to their families by providing these services within our community,” Prairie Community Endeavours Executive Director Laurie Ledinski said.

This renovation supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy which was released in June 2015.  It focuses on six priority areas including: transportation, respite, accessibility legislation, residential services, service co-ordination and navigation, and awareness/understanding of the rights of people experiencing disabilities.

Saskatchewan residents and communities who have done work which aligns with the Disability Strategy are encouraged to share their accomplishments using the hashtag #SKDisability.  The Saskatchewan Disability Strategy Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/skdisability.
