NIPAWIN AND DISTRICT SERVICES TO THE HANDICAPPED INCORPORATED RECEIVES ADDITIONAL FUNDING

Andy Renaud, MLA for Carrot River Valley today announced on behalf of

Social Services Minister Harry Van Mulligen that Nipawin and District

Services to the Handicapped Incorporated has received $13,550 in

additional annual funding. This will enable the agency to provide

additional support to intellectually-disabled people in the community

and help achieve the goal of ensuring individuals are able to

participate as fully as possible in society.



"We are continuing to invest in quality services for individuals with

intellectual challenges," Renaud said. "Community-based organizations

are our partners in helping ensure people with intellectual

disabilities achieve a better quality of life in the community."



Nipawin and District Services to the Handicapped Incorporated provides

services to meet the needs of individuals living in their own homes.

It also operates group homes, an activity centre and a sheltered

workshop.



In 1999/2000, Social Services is providing more than $39 million to

community-based organizations that operate programs and services for

intellectually-disabled individuals, an increase of 8.9 per cent over

last year. Community-based organizations deliver a wide range of

early childhood intervention, vocational, respite, residential and

other community-based services for people with intellectual

disabilities in Saskatchewan.
