Social Purpose Portfolio
The bold vision of Community Living Parry Sound (CLPS) is for “A community where all people have the power and freedom to determine the life they want”. CLPS works to ensure that people who have a developmental disability can live in their community as valued and contributing citizens empowered by others to pursue a meaningful life.
Our partnership with CLPS was launched in March 2017. Over eighteen months, LIFT will collaborate with CLPS and provide support to the organization as they advance their Community First Philosophy and adopt a personalized approach to helping people build satisfying lives in their community. As a result of LIFT’s support, it is expected that CLPS will be able to effectively transition from a grant funding model to a fee-for- service model, and transform its business practices to focus on personalized support that responds to the needs and circumstances of each person.
