RSCL expands services in Richmond

Richmond Society for Community Living is excited to announce our expansion of services in the City of Richmond.  Beginning April 1, 2015 RSCL will assume operation of two residential programs and community inclusion supports in Richmond, formerly managed by Deafblind Services Society of BC (DSS).

For nearly 30 years DSS has been committed to creating community inclusion for the individuals that they support. When faced with fiscal challenges due to their relative small size, the DSS Board of Directors looked to RSCL which shares a similar philosophy of supporting individuals to celebrate their unique gifts to fully participate in community.

We believe that, given our proven track record providing exceptional residential and community inclusion programming, we are well positioned to ensure that those currently supported by DSS, and their family members, will continue to receive quality care and support. We also believe that these services will enhance RSCL’s existing programs, offering new opportunities for all that we support.

RSCL management have been working closely with the DSS Board and staff to transition services as seamlessly as possible beginning with the 2015-2016 fiscal year. If you have any questions regarding this change to RSCL programs and services, please contact Janice Barr, Executive Director RSCL at 604-279-7043 or jbarr@rscl.org.
