Inspiring Possibilities

We Remain Operational as an Essential Service
Community Living Upper Ottawa Valley remains operational following the March 23, 2020 "List of Essential Workplaces" announcement by the Ontario government. An abridged version of the Ontario government's notification is as follows:

"Businesses and all other organizations that support the provision of food, shelter, safety or protection, and/or social services and other necessities of life to economically disadvantaged and other vulnerable individuals, including but not limited to...adults with developmental disabilities..."

While our organization is experiencing many of the challenges of others in our business community, our staff and leadership are committed to getting the people we support through this pandemic. We appreciate others in our community who are doing the same.

In the past few days, many people have inquired about how they can help us. We sincerely appreciate this offer. At this time, we are following our Ministry protocols and putting our attention to effective operations. Should circumstances allow us to invite volunteer assistance, we will let you know.

Thank you to the community for their continued vigilance and compassion during this time.
