As the President of the Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you to our website. I hope you find the information useful and the stories enlightening.
I have been involved with SaskAbilities for many years, both as a client and a volunteer. Serving on the Board provides me with the opportunity to work together with my fellow Board members to ensure that SaskAbilities meets the needs of the people of Saskatchewan. The organization’s focus on client-centred programming is key to its success.
For more than six decades, SaskAbilities has provided innovative programs delivered in a respectful and welcoming environment. Community needs change over time, and SaskAbilities strives to ensure that it meets its mission through relevant and thoughtful programming. As an individual with a disability, I appreciate the work SaskAbilities does to assist people with disabilities to enhance their community involvement.
Protecting human rights and ensuring people with disabilities can participate fully in the community is a passion of mine. Serving SaskAbilities as President is one way of contributing to that goal. People with disabilities want to be involved in every aspect of their communities, whether it be through employment, recreation or human service. I encourage you to visit our website often to learn more about how SaskAbilities can help you or someone you know.
Andy Livingston, Board President
