Welcome to COR
In an effort to support our government’s goal to make Saskatchewan the best place for people with disabilities to live, COR continues to develop personalized supports for our provinces most marginalized citizens, while collaborating with community partners to forge out new opportunities for our sector at large.
COR, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region (RQHR) Mental Health and Addiction Services (MH&AS) and the Ministry of Social Services, Community Living Service Delivery (CLSD) have made great strides to improving the quality of support for individuals with an Intellectual/Developmental Disability and a Mental Health diagnosis. Through a new partnership, COR will have a dedicated employee focused solely on improving the quality of support through direct collaboration with MH&AS professionals. With a common interest at heart, this new partnership will enhance the quality of life of the individuals served by COR.
To further share our vision with the province, COR has accepted the opportunity to help design the development of the Provincial Disability Strategy through participation in a fifteen member Citizen Consultation Team. ‘This strategy will support Saskatchewan’s Plan for Growth by supporting people with disabilities to participate in and contribute to the provinces growing economy.’ The Strategy has adopted an impact-based approach to disability and will focus on six (6) priority areas, including: housing, transportation, employment, education, community inclusion and support for caregivers. Collaborations such this are imperative to creating more inclusive communities across our province.
COR strives to be on the cutting edge of our sector in exploring growth and development opportunities for individuals supported, while too offering a unique work environment for our employees. By investing in professional development and enhanced training opportunities, COR’s aim is to develop a cadre of knowledgeable and deeply skilled mentors committed to the vision of our dear friend John: a systematic change toward a culture of gentleness.
Thank you to all the fellow community organizations, local businesses, community members and the Ministry of Social Services, Community Living Service Delivery for their continued support in allowing us to develop unique opportunities personalized to the people we serve; we are truly blessed to be in a community that recognizes the need for compassion in serving those most marginalized. A special thank you to all the families, support personnel, board members and individuals of COR for making each and every day truly special – you all continue to be our source of inspiration!
