Community Living BC (CLBC) is recognizing leaders from across B.C. for their innovation and dedication in making sure people with developmental disabilities remain included and connected to their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The recognition is part of CLBC’s annual Widening Our World (WOW) awards. This year’s WOW winners include community and provincial leaders who have given extensive support to people across the province.
We are deeply humbled and grateful to tell you that FSIBC has received the WOW (Widening our World) award from CLBC.
The Family Support Institute was chosen as a winner by the selection committee for their rapid response to ensuring individuals and families were kept informed during the pandemic, and their creation of opportunities to keep people connected and feeling safe.
FSI listened to families about what they needed and created workshops and online learning and connection opportunities. They invested staff time to intentionally connect with families and to find ways to get information out about how to stay safe and connected in very scary and uncertain times.
