The purpose of the Supported Living Network (SLN) is to assist those with developmental disabilities to live as independently as possible within our communities. Supported persons who have an ability to meet their basic needs with regards to health and safety, are matched with a staff person who will support them in the areas of daily life and self-care skills, home maintenance, and social integration. SLN staff also provides a crucial monitoring service to ensure health and safety needs are met and supported. The program primarily serves those in Vancouver and North Vancouver, however the program also provides supports to individuals living in other areas throughout Metro Vancouver.
The average number of hours a person served in the SLN program receives is from five to seven per week. If a supported person requires daily support, or more than 12-14 hours per week of support, a more comprehensive service may be needed. The basic skills required to be suitable for the SLN program are:
Anyone interested in receiving services by the SLN must be referred by a Facilitator through Community Living BC (CLBC).
