Community Living Atikokan thinks outside the sector
Community Living Atikokan’s newest initiative shows what an organization can do outside of the sector without losing sight of the vision of the Community Living movement.
The initiative focuses on an issue that is common in Northwestern Ontario, seniors being forced out of their homes to larger centres away from their loved ones due to a lack of housing. The organization is working in collaboration with their community in the town building a much need resource allowing seniors to remain close to home.
Several of the people Community Living Atikokan supports are seniors and this initiative aims to consider how they can help them stay in their community.
