Former Valley View Residents Move Into New Saskatoon Group Home

Released on January 22, 2018

Social Services Minister Paul Merriman, joined community members, dignitaries and group home residents in Saskatoon to celebrate the grand opening of LutherCare Communities’ new Lutheran Sunset Home.

This home will provide care to four former Valley View Centre residents who have transitioned into community-based living.  The government provided $50,000 to set up and furnish the home, on top of providing annual funding.  LutherCare Communities operates nine group homes, providing 37 residential spaces and eight day program spaces.

“The opening of this new group home represents another step forward in our government’s support of person-centred community living,” Merriman said.  “The four people who have transitioned from Valley View Centre into the Saskatoon community will experience a life of choice, independence and belonging.”

“LutherCare Communities mission is to provide excellence in care, shelter and support,” LutherCare Communities Chief Executive Officer Vivienne Hauck said.  “This is a wonderful opportunity to be able to work within our mission, at the same time meeting the needs of the community.  Our Community Services team is honoured to be part of this opportunity to participate in the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy, enriching the lives of others.”

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 who have done work that 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
