MULTIWORKS OF MEADOW LAKE RECEIVES ADDITIONAL FUNDING

Maynard Sonntag, Minister of Post-Secondary Education and Skills

Training today announced on behalf of Social Services Minister Harry

Van Mulligen that Multiworks in Meadow Lake has received $7,700

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," Sonntag said. "Community-based

organizations are our partners in helping ensure people with

intellectual disabilities achieve a better quality of life in the

community."



Multiworks operates a group home, a group living program, an activity

centre, a sheltered workshop, and independent living and apartment

living program for residents in Meadow Lake and area.



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.
