New Group Home In Aberdeen Marks Program Expansion

Released on June 6, 2019

Social Services Minister Paul Merriman joined community members, dignitaries, staff and group home residents in Aberdeen to celebrate the grand opening of a new Farm in the Dell group home.

The group home will house five people and has an attached independent living suite for an additional two more residents.  The Government of Saskatchewan provided more than $550,000 in annual funding for this initiative.

“Seven people were welcomed into their new home today and we are excited to celebrate with them,” Merriman said.  “We are proud to partner with Farm in the Dell and support their work toward building inclusive communities.”

Farm in the Dell is a community-based organization supporting people with disabilities in a rural farm-like setting through residential and vocational opportunities.

“We are very excited to open this home in partnership with the Government of Saskatchewan to provide rural residential supports for more individuals in our community,” Farm in the Dell Co-Executive Directors Krista Neufeld and Lynette Zacharias said.

This group home supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy by creating residential services for 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.
