Alexandria - Each day, community living agencies and front line developmental service workers help people with intellectual disabilities gain the skills and confidence needed to live fully in our community.
To recognize the commitment and dedication of support workers in ensuring the well-being and growth of people with intellectual disabilities and their families, Community Living Glengarry staff (CUPE 3390), and the agency administration, are hosting a tree-planting celebration on May 17.
The symbolic planting part of Community Living Awareness Month highlights the important work community living staff do helping people with intellectual disabilities blossom and stay rooted in the community. Individuals receiving care and support from the Glengarry agency, and their parents and family members, are also invited to the celebration.
