Support to individuals to participate in a variety of recreational, fitness, leisure, and educational activities.
Community Inclusion Program
Vital Society offers community inclusion programs funded by Community Living BC. Our community inclusion programs offer support to individuals to participate in a variety of recreational, fitness, leisure, and educational activities. A plan is developed with the individual and implemented accordingly.
The Program Coordinator and/or staff members assist to create an Individualized Service Plan based on the needs and strengths of the individual served, and through this offer, many more options for community inclusion activities are possible. Recreationally, individuals are supported to participate in any and all available activities within our community suited to their needs and abilities.
If, through the Individualized Service Plan, or through collaboration with the individual’s guardian or Homeshare provider, it becomes clear that continued education is a focus for the individual served, the Community Inclusion plan created for the individual will reflect that. We will work into their weekly plan various times in which educational activities can take place.
Individuals are supported to develop strong inter/intra-personal communication skills and establish relationships within the community. Individuals’ support networks are encouraged and strengthened.
Our programs are funded by Community Living BC (CLBC), and to be eligible applicants must meet the criteria below. Providing that there is a vacancy within our program, all individuals are graciously welcomed to Vitals Community Inclusion where our focus is to further develop the abilities of individuals served and enrich the lives of all involved.
