Quesnel Community Living Association was formed in 1959 to advocate for services for children with Diverse Abilities. By 1977 the focus had shifted to meeting the needs of adults with Diverse Abilities. We provide 24 hour Residential Programs, Self Help Skills and Day Programs, as well as, Semi-Independent Living Programs to individuals requiring services. In 2000, QCLA recognized the need to support people who were experiencing changing needs due to aging or other physical challenges. To respond to this need the Association purchased a ranch style home. Major renovations resulted in a wheelchair accessible facility which retained the atmosphere of a home.
Quesnel Community Living Association (QCLA) is an accredited nonprofit society established in 1959 and registered under the BC Societies Act. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of community members. Our funding comes from Community Living of BC.
Quesnel Community Living Association recognizes the inherent value of supporting persons with Diverse Abilities in their choices and decisions in life. QCLA is committed to support Persons Receiving Services (PRS) in the areas of community inclusion and independence, according to their wishes.
