Opening Of New Group Home Celebrated In Regina

Released on March 28, 2019

Today, Social Services Minister Paul Merriman joined community members, dignitaries and group home residents in Regina to celebrate the grand opening of a new Christian Horizons group home.

The home will provide residential supports for four former residents of Valley View Centre.  The government provided $602,707 in annual funding for the home.

“Our government is proud to work with community partners like Christian Horizons to provide person-centred services for people with intellectual disabilities,” Merriman said.  “As we get closer to the closure of Valley View Centre, it is exciting to reflect on how many neighborhoods have become richer because of homes like this one.”

Christian Horizons receives more than $10 million in annual funding from the Ministry of Social Services to provide supports for people with disabilities.  They operate 16 homes across the province, in addition to group-living homes, and provide day options and person-directed enhanced supports.

“Christian Horizons is excited about partnering with the Ministry of Social Services to enhance the lives of those experiencing disabilities,” Christian Horizons Executive Director Ann Gyurmanczi said.  “Christian Horizons’ commitment is to value people, foster belonging, serve others and respect people’s gifts. Communities are greater when everyone belongs.”

This new 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.
