We are a unique Community Access program for adults with developmental disabilities (referred to as Participants) through Alberta Human Services-Disability Services (PDD). Our program is delivered in Calgary and Medicine Hat. We owe a large part of our continued success to our community partners. Our ability to access dependable host sites lets participants experience meaningful, ongoing work opportunities in our community all year round.
