Supporting working-age youth and adults with disabilities to achieve their goals in independence, well-being and community, this service typically appeals to people who desire increased community involvement, relationship building and skill development. Individuals in these services are primarily funded through Disability Services – PDD (Persons with Developmental Disabilities) and Family Support for Children with Disabilities, departments within the Government of Alberta.

For information about our services, please contact our Service Co-ordination Team, who will provide you with a tour, a detailed explanation of our services and an application for services. Individuals and guardians then choose which services they are interested in, and, if space and funding are available, an individualized assessment is scheduled. The assessment allows for the individual to experience as many aspects of our services as possible, so, together, we can determine the individual's interests, potential goals and support requirements. Upon completion of the assessment, if the service is a positive match for the individual, a proposal for continued service is submitted to the funder.
Our Program Director and Team Leaders oversee our Community Access Services within the following teams: NIKES, LIFE, SPICE, Pathfinders & Mosaic. For specific questions regarding an individual's service, please contact the Team Leader or Program Director.
