Community Living BC Partnership

Community Living BC and Community Volunteer Connections have partnered to support adults with developmental (dis)abilities integrate into the community through the Volunteer Integration Program (VIP). Adults work towards developing skills, which allows them to become independent, and contribute to the health and well-being of the community.
