The Newfoundland & Labrador Association for Community Living (NLACL) is committed to a future of inclusive communities where:
The NLACL is a non-profit organization that works with and on behalf of persons with intellectual disabilities and their families. The NLACL promotes a vision of communities where everyone belongs and have a rightful place; where families support a person’s right to full citizenship with society.
It is simple really-most of us experience it every day. We are welcomed into our community, work with our peers and go to school with our friends. NLACL works hard to make sure persons with disabilities are welcomed and supported in their community in the same way.
What Can We Do Together?
We can learn about, and share information on: support for families, income and disability supports, inclusive education; securing citizenship and legal capacity for all, RDSP’s, SET mentoring, future planning, supported employment; the UN convention of the rights of persons with disabilities, supportive living and much more.
We can work together, and with government and other agencies, help build more inclusive communities.
We can provide guidance and direction to others seeking or needing support.
