We believe everybody can work if they are given the right opportunity. Youth (15-24 years of age) are passionate, vital, and eager to make a difference and be part of their communities. Young people bring many benefits to the workplace, including energy, adaptability, technological skills and a new perspective. Well rounded staffing teams, including employees with developmental disabilities, reflect the values and ideals of the Chilliwack community, while helping to improve business culture and benefiting the bottom line of local employers.
We help people with developmental disabilities reach their full potential by living and belonging in community.
We do this by facilitating community connections, family supports, employment opportunities, and supportive housing options with a commitment to life-long learning, choice and self-determination.
Gentle Teaching is the philosophy the HOME Society embraces, this approach is not selective in its application and is at the core of all that we do. At the Home Society we do not view those we support as broken and in need of repair, but rather as complete individuals with gifts and warmth and laughter to share. We create a culture of gentleness and unconditional love, a culture of relationships and reciprocal acceptance. We do not use the tools of behavior modification…restraint, time-out and consequences, but rather the genuine tools of gentleness….our words…our presence…our eyes…..our touch.
ILS builds and strengthens community through advocacy, information and support. We provide services that improve quality of life for children with developmental or special needs and adults with intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorder.
