It is my honour as the President of the Board of Directors to welcome you to SaskAbilities’ accessible website. I invite you to navigate the pages that share more about the organization’s programs and highlight its vision, mission, and, values mobilized through services provided in communities across Saskatchewan.
SaskAbilities has a rich history of serving individuals experiencing disability in Saskatchewan. Since 1950, the organization has been steadfast in its vision of building inclusive communities for people of all abilities. While SaskAbilities has grown and evolved over the past 7 decades, what remains unchanged are the roots of the organization which continue to inform its purpose-driven work today.
I have had the great privilege of witnessing and contributing to the impact of SaskAbilities as a volunteer Board Member since 2009. I have also experienced firsthand the invaluable services the organization provides to individuals like myself, who are experiencing disability. From my time attending Camp Easter Seal as a child to utilizing special needs equipment today, what I know to be true is SaskAbilities does not just enhance the lives of the people it serves, it infuses hope into families, and pours essential resources into the community.
As someone who believes deeply that representation matters, I am proud to serve an organization and work alongside a Board of Directors who are dedicated to modeling what inclusion looks like from the inside out. I also want to acknowledge and thank the many donors, supporters, and stakeholders who are direct contributors to the success and longevity of SaskAbilities. Together, we can and will continue to change lives and evoke positive change through our unified vision of building inclusive communities across Saskatchewan.
Thank you again for your interest in SaskAbilities and support of the work we do. I hope you are inspired to visit the website often and learn how you can make an impact in the lives of individuals experiencing disability in your community.
Andy Livingston, President
