At Community Living Algoma, we're on a mission to turn dreams into reality, and we believe that everyone deserves to live with dignity and full inclusion in their community. Want to be a part of making this vision a reality? We need your help, your passion, and your unique talents!

Community Living Algoma believes that all people should be able to live in dignity, in their community, where they can ccess the supports needed to ensure full inclusion. We need your help to make this a reality. Community Living Algoma realizes the importance of our many volunteers that truly help make people's dreams come true every day. Some people with a developmental disability can only go to a movie - or to an aerobics class, or even just for a coffee - if they have someone to go with them. Through a combination of staff, volunteers and family members supporting people, many lives are enriched on a daily basis. Our volunteers are special people, who share their own interests and time, or by friendly visiting, with someone who is looking for the same thing.
