The Langenburg and District Activity Centre has been supporting people with intellectual disabilities since 1980.
Currently the centre supports 12 people with intellectual disabilities through their residential and day programs.
And to keep that committment going the building underwent renovations, including fully-accessible washrooms, and expanded kitchen and program areas and landscaping improvements to help with water and drainage issues.
“The renovations not only ensure we are able to provide safe and wheelchair-accessible services, but has allowed us to create a warm and inviting environment where our participants can explore new and exciting opportunities to increase their overall quality of life,” LDAC Executive Director Kaylee Miller said in a statement. “We could not be more excited to have a better place to call home!”
The Ministry of Social Services provided $220-thousand dollars to help upgrade the building.
“I think it’s a great achievement for everyone involved, and for the community it just highlights the abilities of the community to help support all of their residents,” said Government Relations Minister and Melville-Saltcoats MLA Warren Kaeding who was in Langenburg for the grand reopening today (Thurs), along with community members, dignitaries and day program attendees.
“I think it means an awful lot for our staff and our workforce that’s here, that they’re getting to work with a fully-renovated building.”
LADC operate three group homes, two day programs, a supported living program and a SARCAN depot in both Langenburg and Esterhazy.
