Inclusion BC & CLBC Launch New Site to Promote Inclusive Housing
Inclusion BC & Community Living BC (CLBC) has partnered up to create a new website called, Key to Home. The website is meant to bring awareness to the need for inclusive housing and to give you tools to promote inclusive housing in your community.
People with intellectual disabilities still face enormous barriers in the search for a home that is affordable, safe and inclusive. Housing is a priority for Inclusion BC, as it is for our members, the people we support, and our provincial and national counterparts across Canada.
The website includes:
- Research about the demand for inclusive housing in BC.
- A video about inclusive housing featuring Corus apartments in South Surrey.
- Materials to help you advance inclusive housing in your community.
- Inclusive Housing Stories.
- Information sheets to help you plan.
One aim of the Key to Home campaign is to help people understand what makes for inclusive housing: affordability, accessibility, diversity as well choice and control.
The Key to Home campaign follows through on the 2018 Inclusive Taskforce plan to increase access to inclusive housing.
Inclusion BC will continue to advocate for inclusive housing and for personalized, flexible supports to be available where and when people need them. CVS is glad to see this initiative launch. As an agency that offers Shared Living services, we recognize the challenge of finding inclusive housing amongst our community. We hope this resource assists those that we serve & the community as a whole.
