Changing Lives, Changing Communities

We are on a mission to let the people of Newfoundland and Labrador know just how important the programs of NLACL mean to the lives of the 15,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities in this province, as well as their families, and communities.

The Changing Lives, Changing Communities Initiative holds twice-monthly learning lunches where we talk about some of our programs and the goals we’re working towards, and share some of the deeply personal stories of individuals with an intellectual disability and their families; people whose lives have been forever changed as a result of the work we do at NLACL.

So that we can continue to build inclusive communities where everyone belongs, please consider helping us by inviting others to attend one of our learning lunches. It could be anyone really – friends, family, or business contacts. If you would prefer, we can come to you and do a session on-site for your group or business.

Our learning lunches are for information only, and guests will not be asked to make any financial contribution at the session. We do ask that people would be willing to accept a short phone call a few days after the session to follow up and get feedback.
