To develop person centered, flexible opportunities and support in the community for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
That all people with disabilities will lead rich full lives, have equal opportunities for lifelong learning, be recognized as active and contributing members of society and be part of, not parallel to, their community.
The central purpose of our presence in the lives of others is to teach, nurture and sustain the experience of connectedness, community and companionship.
Saskatchewan Alternative Initiatives (SAI) is an established non-profit in Saskatoon with over 20 years experience in supporting people with disabilities. We were granted charitable status in 2017.
Our programming includes a 24h-hour residential Home Support Program, a community-based Vocational Program and a Semi Independent Living Program, which together supports over 60 individuals.
Our unique approach to support and program development is deeply rooted in the philosophies of Gentle Teaching, person centeredness and servant leadership. This approach allows individuals to live according to their own values, discover their talents and interests, and live a life of dignity on their own terms.
