Former Valley View Residents Move Into New Yorkton Group Home

Released on February 21, 2018

Rural and Remote Health Minister Greg Ottenbreit on behalf of Social Services Minister Paul Merriman, joined community members, dignitaries and group home residents to celebrate the grand opening of Yorkton Adult Independent Living (YAIL) Harbor’s new group home.

This home will provide care to four residents, three of which are former residents of Valley View Centre who have transitioned into community-based living.   The government provided $43,283 to set up and furnish the home, on top of providing annual funding.  YAIL Harbor operates four group homes, a day program and a supported independent living program.

“I am pleased to officially welcome these four people to their beautiful new home that will support their inclusion into the City of Yorkton,” Ottenbreit said.  “I thank YAIL Harbor for their valuable contributions to the province through their work with individuals with intellectual disabilities in our community.”

“I’d like to thank the Government of Saskatchewan for their continued support,” YAIL Harbor Executive Director Sonya Reviczky said.  “This home will provide housing for four people to call their own in Yorkton.  We are so thankful to our partners for helping us make a difference in the lives of our residents.”

The new group home 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 that 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
