About PARENTS FOR COMMUNITY LIVING KITCHENER - WATERLOO INC
Conceived by a group of visionary parents of developmentally challenged individuals, Parents for Community Living was incorporated in 1989 as a not-for-profit charitable organization.
The dream was to create an atmosphere where developmentally challenged adults could grow in physical, emotional and spiritual well-being and become valued members of our community.
Parents for Community Living - KW (PCL) plays an important role in the lives of people with developmental disabilities in the Waterloo Region and for their families. PCL currently operates 11 homes and which offer various forms of support, including independent to 24 hour enhanced living support for children and adults. We also offer respite service for children and adults.
Parents for Community Living also offers several community supports:
Core/Dream Club: A day program that operates Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm. Participants enjoy a full day of sports, arts and crafts, music, brain and sensory activities as well as cultural outings. PCL supports over 32 adults with this program.
Computer Apprenticeship Program: Provides developmentally disabled youth between the ages of 17 and 24 with computer skills training which will enhance their ability to live and work independently within the community.
