In Support Of...

Providing Safety, Practicing Respect, Promoting Community

Vita Community Living Services is an organization made up of people who are committed to serving people who have intellectual disabilities and/or mental health illness with respect and dignity. We realize that we earn the trust of those in our care every day. We have been successful in creating a structure that minimizes hierarchy and maximizes communication.
To help us achieve excellence, the members of Vita's Self-Advocacy Group provide feedback and offer helpful critiques of our care. Our Executive Director and the members of our Board of Directors are committed to supporting, not controlling, the organization. All the members of our management team have embraced the idea of welcoming individuals from institutions as well as those who come to us from their families. We believe that all individuals, regardless of their personal challenges, should have a home and a place in the community. We are here to welcome and serve, to listen with our eyes and our hearts, and to honour the trust given to us by individuals with disabilities and by their families.
