New Group Home for People with Disabilities Opens in North Battleford

A new group home is now open for Individuals with intellectual disabilities in need of transitional residential services and supports in North Battleford in part thanks to an investment of approximately $1.4 million by the Government of Saskatchewan.   

“Building strong, inclusive communities for people with disabilities remains a focus for our province,” Cut Knife-Turtleford MLA Ryan Domotor said on behalf of Social Services Minister Gene Makowsky. “Community partners are essential to building accessible and welcoming communities where people with disabilities can live as independently as possible. That is why the Government of Saskatchewan is proud to work alongside Christian Horizons to support the development and operations of this group home.”

The four-space group home will provide transitional residential services and community wrap around supports to individuals with intellectual disabilities. The Ministry of Social Services provided more than $1 million in capital funding to develop the home, in addition to $391,000 in funding to support operations in the 2023-24 fiscal year. 

Christian Horizons will be supporting four clients within the new North Battleford group home, as well as two clients through Supportive Independent Living Programming as part of this project. The property will be leased through the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation.

Christian Horizons is a non-profit organization that has supported individuals with intellectual disabilities since 1965. The organization currently operates vocational programming as well as residential programs across Saskatchewan, serving roughly 200 clients provincially. 

“We are pleased to work with the Ministry of Social Services to deliver quality supports as people transition into their communities,” Christian Horizons Executive Director Stefan Thomas said. “This beautiful home will provide an opportunity for people who experience disabilities to share their gifts with their neighbours, families, and friends and to contribute to the amazing community of North Battleford. We look forward to the work ahead of us and, together with the people we support, building communities where everybody belongs.”
