Our board members are self-advocates and family members with sons, daughters or siblings supported by Community Living BC and Family and Children’s Services. Collectively we have many years’ experience in the Community Living movement as advocates.

We have also given many years of volunteer and paid service in other related non-profit organizations in British Columbia, such as local community living associations, provincial and community family networks and advocacy organizations as well as government committees and initiatives.
