Community Inclusion & Employment

Our CVS Community Inclusion programs provide opportunities for individuals to develop in all areas of life. To provide person-centred service, we conduct a thorough analysis of the person’s strengths, skills, abilities, likes, dislikes and preferences to create a unique schedule based on a person's needs and desires. The schedule may include volunteer activities, paid work, education, recreation and/or leisure pursuits. We also work to ensure that people are placed in a program that most meets their ideal conditions for inclusion.

Our hours of operation are generally from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, Monday through Friday.
