New Luthercare Group Home Opens In Saskatoon

Released on February 28, 2020

Four adults with intellectual disabilities will have a new place to call home thanks to LutherCare Communities and the Government of Saskatchewan.

“Our government is so pleased to work hand-in-hand with our partners, families and people with disabilities to create a province where everyone can participate in their community to the best of their ability,” Social Services Minister Paul Merriman said.  “I want to thank LutherCare Communities for being a part of creating an inclusive community in our province.”

The government provided more than $530,000 in annual funding to cover residential and day program supports for the new residents.  This funding is part of the more than $5.5 million provided to LutherCare Communities each year.

LutherCare Communities operate a variety of group homes, a supported independent living program and a day program.  They provide services to people with intellectual disabilities, high medical needs and complex needs.

“Since 1995, we have been part of providing person-centred quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities,” LutherCare Communities Chief Executive Officer Vivienne Hauck said.  “It has been an absolute pleasure to be part of this celebration 25 years later.  Thanks for the opportunity to be in involved with this provincial strategy.”

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.

For information on how to access supports for intellectual disabilities, please contact the Community Living Service Delivery office nearest you or email clsd.info@gov.sk.ca.
