Community Living Haldimand, located in Cayuga provides individualized support to those with mental health issues and teaches them life skills, budgeting and social skills. Through support and advocacy, they are responsible for assuring that individuals with intellectual disabilities are treated with dignity and respect.
They have also extended their altruism by offering support to families in the community. Heather Putt from Community Living contacted the Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk seeking a family in need to sponsor at Christmas.
Once a family and their needs were identified, the response from Community Living and its staff was nothing short of spectacular and heart warming.
Ms. Putt reported that she was overwhelmed with the response of staff, “It has been remarkable. We have collected about three pick up truck loads worth of clothes, toys, food, beds and bedding.”
The Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk wishes to express our thanks to Community Living for the remarkable work they do and the generosity they have displayed.
