Some Impressions from People We Serve!

My youngest sister was born with Down’s Syndrome, and my parents worked tirelessly to ensure that Amy saw the world as a wonderful place with endless possibilities.  She lived a beautiful life filled with choices for work, recreation, spirituality, and love from family and friends (lots of friends!)  She was happy, and so proud of her many accomplishments.

I was initially drawn to apply to this organization, as their philosophy and values matched my family’s support of Amy in her life.  Every day I witness my diverse group of coworkers truly listening to what people want.  Each person’s goals are used as the guide in our work to promote true belonging and inclusion in the pursuit of assisting them to live their best life.

Many things have changed over the course of my career, but what keeps me with Community Living Kingston and District, is that our philosophy and mission has only grown stronger with time.  I am very proud of the work of this organization.

“Intégration Communautaire est devenue notre FAMILLE maintenant que nous sommes seuls en tant qu’enfants uniques, mère et fils, Karin et Nicolas. Étant un parent célibataire vieillissant, il est réconfortant de constater les soins que mon fils reçoit dans les services résidentiels : de la conservation de soutiens et d’activités privées au bénévolat avec “Loving Spoonful”, à atteindre de nouveaux niveaux de dépendance avec son personnel et sa communauté.”

Karin Steiner

“Nous sommes les parents de quatre enfants avec des besoins multiples et variées. Nous nous sommes impliqués avec Intégration Communautaire il y a environ 20 ans lorsque nos deux garçons plus âgés sont allés à l’école maternelle et avaient l’assistance d’un Consultant en Ressources. Le même Consultant en Ressources a également aidé notre fille quand elle a commencé l’école maternelle. Lorsque les enfants ont commencé l’école élémentaire, nous avons rencontré un Consultant Aide à la Famille qui a été impliqué depuis. Bien que notre plus jeune enfant ne soit pas qualifié pour Intégration Communautaire, le Consultant nous aide avec ses défis. Notre situation familiale peut être très accablante parfois, mais l’aide que nous avons reçue d’Intégration Communautaire rend les choses un peu plus faciles. Nous ne savons pas ce que nous aurions fait sans eux!”

“We are the parents of 4 children with multiple and varied exceptionalities. We first got involved with Community Living about 20 years ago when our 2 older boys went to nursery school and had a Resource Consultant. The same Resource Consultant also helped our daughter when she went to nursery school. When the children started school we met a Family Support Worker that has been involved ever since. Although our youngest child doesn’t qualify for Community Living, the worker helps us with his challenges. Our family situation can be very overwhelming at times, but the help we’ve received from Community Living makes it a little easier. We don’t know what we would have done without them!”

Karen and Terry

“Community Living has become our FAMILY now that we are on our own as only children, mother and son, Karin & Nicolas. As an aging single parent, it is heartening to witness the care my son receives in residential services: from retaining private supports & activities to volunteering with Loving Spoonful, to achieving new levels of INTERdependence with his staff and community.”
