Province Celebrates Newly Built Group Home In Regina

Released on January 17, 2020

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

“I’m excited to celebrate our partnership with Clare Parker Homes, and the opening of this new group home today,” Regina Pasqua MLA Muhammad Fiaz said on behalf of Social Services Minister Paul Merriman.  “Group homes make our communities more diverse and welcoming.”

The government provided $505,000 in annual funding to support the four residents, in addition to $97,826 for annual day program funding.  This funding is part of more than $4 million provided to Clare Parker Homes each year.

This funding helps them support people with intellectual disabilities.  They operate a variety of group homes, a supported independent living program and day program services.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to support these gentlemen,” Clare Parker Homes Executive Director Rosa Smith said.  “Clare Parker Homes is committed to serving the community and ensuring we can provide the best home and support for people experiencing intellectual disabilities.  This is our eighth home in Regina.”

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.  You can find the nearest office at www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/family-and-social-support/find-a-social-services-office.
