Former Valley View Residents Move Into New Regina Group Home

Released on June 27, 2018

Today, Regina Walsh Acres MLA Warren Steinley on behalf of Social Services Minister Paul Merriman joined community members, dignitaries and group home residents in Regina to celebrate the grand opening of Clare Parker Homes new group home.

This home will provide care to three former residents of Valley View Centre who have transitioned into community-based living.  Currently, 60 people reside at Valley View Centre and are in the process of finding new homes in communities of their choice.

“The opening of this new group home represents another step forward in our government’s support of person-centred community living,” Steinley said.  “I wish all the best to the three people moving into their new home and I want to thank Clare Parker Homes for working to create an inclusive community here in Regina.”



Clare Parker Homes operates six group homes, a day program and offers supported independent living services.

“Clare Parker Homes aims to provide high-quality supported living options for people experiencing disability,” Clare Parker Homes Executive Director Rosa Smith said.  “The agency has been providing support since 1978 in the community.  We are so excited to welcome the three gentlemen to our agency and our community.  The team works toward creating a great life for the gentlemen.  Witnessing their everyday connections is truly incredible and continues to inspire us to do the work that we do, as well as expand our services.”

This group home supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy by creating residential services for people with disabilities.  The strategy which was released in June 2015 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 with disabilities.

Saskatchewan residents and communities that 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 www.facebook.com/skdisability.
