February 11, 2023/inBlog, Gentle Teaching, Media
The above quotation from Michael Lavis, CEO outlines the philosophy here at Creative Options Regina. At COR our main focus is to ensure that people we support feel safe, valued and respected. Creative Options started in 2009 in order to provide personalized support services to people with intellectual disabilities and often a mental health diagnosis. COR helps individuals who need access to multiple services by connecting individuals to whatever services they need in the community.
For an in depth look and a better understanding of the philosophy and stories of the many people who benefit from COR services and opportunities take a look at the full article here on My Toast Life.
COR is one of many non-profits and initiatives doing good work in Regina. Guru Nanak Free Kitchen provides hundreds of free meals every Sunday at the corner of Dewdney Avenue and Angus Street.
The Lady Viak and Afro Mentorship programs support local women and children. The newly formed Habitat for Humanity Saskatchewan hopes to help 21 families in 2021. And one local woman is protecting the bird population in Regina’s Cathedral community.
