The Canadian Association for Community Living - Clare Branch

 

Our Mission – What do we do?

We offer living, learning and working environments to support adults labelled with a disability to enhance individual potential and independence, and promote full community living as a daily experience.

 

Our Values – What Do We Believe In?

  • All persons have equal dignity. Dignity does not depend on physical, intellectual, or any other differentiating characteristic – it is an inherent right.
  • All persons are entitled to equal access to the community supports necessary to enable equal participation.
  • All persons deserve to be treated with compassion and caring.
  • All persons have the capacity for growth and expression.
  • All persons have a need for security and respect.
  • All persons have the right to make choices that affect their well-being.

 

CACL-Clare is a registered, non-profit organization supporting adults labelled with a disability. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, who oversee the operations of our two branches - l'Atelier de Clare (workplace) and la Maison Jerome (home). Our services are offered in both official languages.

 

Founded in 1978, L'Atelier de Clare is an Adult Service Centre providing day programs to adults living with special needs. We are located in Church Point, on the shores of Saint Mary's Bay in Southwest Nova Scotia. Our program includes work and life skills counseling, job training and employment. In addition to classes in literacy and numeracy, healthy living, effective communication, and social well-being, our clients participate in our social enterprise activities - woodworking, craft production, engraving, lawn maintenance, home-cleaning services, and retail sales. We operate under the principles of independence and inclusion. For more information on Atelier de Clare, please click here

Our Nova Scotia Department of Community Services licensed group home, la Maison Jérôme, is also located in Church Point. La Maison provides a family residence for nine adults, who participate in the workplace activities at l'Atelier de Clare. Residents are supported by qualified staff in their daily living in a safe, pleasant, and healthy environment. We operate under the principle of respect for individuality within a context of social cohesion and community integration. For more information on la Maison Jérôme, please click here
