The Overview

Community Living Victoria

On December 16, 1955, a group of dedicated parents founded what is now called Community Living Victoria (CLV). Today, as the largest non-profit community living service provider on Vancouver Island, Community Living Victoria provides a range of support services to children, youth and adults with intellectual disabilities and their families.

Their work is guided by their values, experience and history and draws from strong roots in the community. Community Living Victoria recognizes the rights of everyone to have a full range of life choices, including access to education, affordable and appropriate housing, leisure options, gainful employment and participation in the community. A healthy community encourages the involvement of everyone.

The Victoria Community Living Foundation was established in 1995 to raise funds and awareness that benefit the children, youth and adults and their families supported by Community Living Victoria.

For every CLV BCause Box ordered, we'll donate 5% towards their Transportation Fund.

The CLV will dedicate the funds raised from the BCause Box program to their transportation fund. This fund is used to pay for maintenance on their aging fleet of specially adapted vehicles. They are also looking to fund a second wheelchair van as they currently only have one and there's a need for more transportation assistance for individuals in wheelchairs.
