The Association's mission statement reads "The Campbell River and District Association for Community Living provides and advocates for local services to support people of all ages with special needs, their families and caregivers", it is important for the Association to stand by their word and provide exceptional support to the Campbell River Community. The Association is determined to creating a strong Youth Transition Program so that individuals making that change can make smooth positive transitions.
Community Living British Columbia provides supports and services to eligible individuals and families who are making the transition from youth to adulthood. Families need to begin transition planning long before a youth turns 19, to ensure a smooth transition, which is an important priority for CLBC. There are many different services that CLBC provides fro individuals making the transition into adult life; these can include respite, community inclusion, employment support, and residential support. These services are put in place to assist individuals to live as fully and independently as possible. CLBC have a number of steps to follow that support youth and their families through this transition.
There are three main steps the Transition process for CLBC has, each with great importance:
CLBC recommends starting the process early and in the suggested times as it may take some time before your family member is able to access services. Even if your family member has accessed children's special needs services and is confirmed eligible for adult community living service, CLBC may not be able to provide support as soon as he or she turns 19, as it could take some time for services to become available. Advanced planning and accessing a range of other community supports and resources is important. In addition to applying to CLBC services, it is also important to explore different options and opportunities of support for your family member. There are a number of other government organizations that work in collaboration with CLBC that will provide support for you family member. Under individual circumstances, people may not get the chance to start the process as soon as their family member turns 16. Although the ages stated in each steps are set guidelines, CLBC would like to confirm eligibility for youth transitioning to adulthood as soon after their 16th birthday as possible, so they encourage to being the steps as soon as you can.
