LIVING THE VISION PROJECT
Living the Vision began as a pilot project initiated by Community Living Welland Pelham in partnership with Partners for Planning to provide six families with the opportunity to engage in planning with their son or daughter. As the lead facilitator for this project, I worked with individuals to develop a plan that was rooted in their dreams and goals. Families and individuals were engaged in learning a planning framework and process that they could adapt moving forward.
The CLWP Family Support Coordinators were also part of the project so as to have an opportunity to learn more about the planning process through mentoring, knowledge sharing and team workshops.
Upon the successful completion of the first year, I am excited to see the project continue through C FAST CONSULTING. Thank you to CLWP for this great opportunity to work together in supporting individuals to live the life they want to live.
Here is what one participant had to say:
"I think facilitation is important because it gives you a different perspective on ways that you could work on your life goals. For instance, for me, I would've never thought of finding additional support through counselling and would not have tried the different volunteer opportunities I've gotten. The support network meetings have also been effective in getting the perspective and input of people, who I'm close with, on how to make my life the way I want it to be."
