WEYBURN GROUP HOME SOCIETY RECEIVES ADDITIONAL FUNDING

Judy Bradley, Minister of Highways today announced on behalf of Social

Services Minister Harry Van Mulligen that Weyburn Group Home Society

has received $31,390 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," Bradley said. "Community-based

organizations are our partners in helping ensure people with

intellectual disabilities achieve a better quality of life in the

community."



Weyburn Group Homes Society operates three group homes and provides

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



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.
