New Day Program Opens In Moose Jaw

Released on November 28, 2018

Today, Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence on behalf of Social Services Minister Paul Merriman, joined community members, dignitaries and day program attendees in Moose Jaw to celebrate the grand opening of the new Kinsmen Inclusion Centre.

The Government of Saskatchewan provided $200,000 to Moose Jaw Families for Change (MJFFC) for the project.  The Kinsmen Inclusion Centre currently supports seven people with intellectual disabilities, with capacity to expand in the near future.  The day program is wheelchair accessible and will offer a range of recreational and life skill activities.

“Day programs play a valuable role in supporting people to be included in their communities,” Lawrence said.  “I want to applaud Moose Jaw Families for Change for being a part of creating an inclusive community right here in Moose Jaw.”

“This truly is an example of the community coming together to create something wonderful,” MJFFC Executive Director Tami Grieve said.  “We have been humbled by the outpouring of support for this project, and we are excited to present these amazing new opportunities for people with varying abilities.”

Since 2000, MJFFC has been supporting people with intellectual disabilities in Moose Jaw.  They currently operate two group homes, one group living home, a supported independent living program and a day program.  The new day program will allow people from the different group homes to come together to interact with one another.
