Community Involvement Legacy Homes is a non-profit, charitable housing corporation created by the Brockville and District Association for Community Involvement. Our purpose is to help people with intellectual disabilities to have a home they can call their own, without having to negotiate the complexities of home ownership directly.
The idea originated from members of the Brockville and District Association for Community Involvement's Legacy committee.
Legacy Homes works in partnership with the Brockville and District Association for Community Involvement. Both entities have been deeply influenced by a group of parents who have been involved with the Association for many years, and who have fought for the inclusion of their sons and daughters with intellectual disabilities throughout their lives. Legacy Homes is another step in that journey.
We believe that people with intellectual disabilities have the right to live in their own homes and to choose where and with whom they live.
We believe that home is a unique creation that comes from the heart of the person, and their life. It could never be created by an organization.
We believe that your home is a reflection of your unique identity.
We believe that home is the base from which you participate in life and are connected to your neighbourhood and your community. It is where you issue the invitations and control the environment.
We believe that integration, affordability and accessibility are primary considerations in the development of housing for people with disabilities.
We believe that the lack of affordable and accessible housing is a community issue, not a disability issue.
