About LMSCL Lower Mainland Society for Community Living


Community Integration Services - Day Program
LMSCL offers Day Program to support individuals with developmental disabilities, physical
disabilities, mental health, medical issues, and substance use to help them to lead meaningful
lives and contribute to the community. Often health, behavioral or social challenges make it
hard for our persons served to meet commitments and they require flexibility for motivation and
success. Staff promotes the belief that every individual is a productive and contributing member
of society. They work hard to match activities with individuals served goals to maximize success
and independence.

LMSCL offers a continuum of community supports throughout the Vancouver and BC’s Lower
Mainland. This includes community involvement, social and recreation and life skills
development. Participants have opportunities to choose from a range of programs and activities
in small or large groups and/or one-to-one settings. Through the planning process, each
person’s interests, strengths, and abilities are explored and programs are developed to meet
their specific needs. All planning is focused on independent living, personal wellness, and
facilitating smooth transitions into home and community. Day Programs operates weekdays
with flexible hours scheduled to meet individual needs.
Residential Support Services
LMSCL specializes in emergency placements (placements in less than 48 hours on weekdays and
72 hours on weekends and holidays of notice by the funders). The agency also provides regular
residential services for children, youth, and adults with various housing needs, including shortand
long-term placements. Specialized services are developed to support persons with Autism
Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Fetal Alcohol Syndrome/Effects (FAS/E), sensory impairments, dual
diagnosis, and persons who may require intensive medical or behavioral support. The homes are
committed to helping individuals to achieve stability, acquire independence and to promote
healthier functioning. There are fully staffed 24-hour residences for persons requiring intensive
daily support. Support varies according to the needs of the individuals in the home and may
include personal care, health planning and support and psychiatric and/or behavioral support.
Semi Independent/ Transitional Homes are lightly staffed homes available for persons who
desire more independence and/or are working toward independent living. They focus on
developing independent living skills and building upon existing strengths. All residential
services facilitate community inclusion. Residential Support Services are funded by Community
Living BC (CLBC) and the Ministry of Child and Family Development (MCFD).
