Success Stories

People with developmental disabilities are just like you and me. They have hopes and dreams, challenges they want to overcome and the desire to grow and develop as individuals.

If you’d like to read a few of their stories and learn more about the people supported by DCLS, click on the links below:

Graham: Late in 2013, Graham Farina started a new job at the accounting office of Peter Harasymchuk in North Delta. “Graham was born to do this job. It took me longer to review and proof his work than it did for him to do it,” ~ employment services counsellor Emily Wheatley.

Kristina, Diane and Al: In early 2011, Clearly Contacts, the world’s largest online retailer of vision care products, hired three individuals who participate in the activities offered by our Surrey Connections location. Kristina, Diane and Al are all now working part-time as Shipping Specialists in the company’s Logistics Department.

Kathy: For the last three years, Kathy has been a fixture at the Studio 19 Art Program, which provides participants with the opportunity to express their artistic talents through various learning and mediums. Not only has Kathy blossomed as an artist, but she’s developed excellent teaching and support skills as part of her ongoing participation in the program.

Nathan: In August of 2010, Nathan joined the DCLS Recreation Program for the first time, as part of a three-day, two-night trip to the Zajac Ranch. The experience had a big impact on his self confidence and willingness to communicate with others.
