In Ontario, Community Living Essex County provides relief and support for residents with intellectual disabilities
Being together while staying apart. That’s been the name of the game since March 2020.
But assisting people of all ages with an intellectual disability has been the name of the game for Community Living Essex County (CLEC) since 1961; so the organization did as many others did last year, and embraced the shift to virtual.
“Our supports have always involved employment, family, and in home support, so we had to get creative in carrying out our programs and events,” says Tony DeSantis, Manager, Community Relations and Resource Development at CLEC.
