Wrapping up and putting a bow on a year’s worth of developments and accomplishments is a daunting task.
BCCL supports over 2000 individuals and their families, delivers a spectrum of children and adult services and supports, manages over $22M in taxpayer’s dollars, and has a lot of moving parts. All this and more in a sector that continues to be chronically underfunded, called upon to do more with less, and in a region that is growing exponentially. To do justice to the work this represents requires more space than the four corners this page provides. However, the values and principles that inform and guide our work are succinct, if not simple:
- We respect the inherent dignity and value of all people.
- We are committed to organizational excellence.
- We work for an inclusive community that values the participation and contribution of all its members.
Therein lies the challenge: keeping our mission and values as a community living organization at the forefront of what we do and to not be distracted by matters peripheral to this. Mission drift and fixation with bureaucracy and never ending process will often fill the vacuum in the absence of organizational clarity and action.
In a survey conducted this past year, 95% of families stated that they were very satisfied or satisfied with their personal service experience and the supports their family member were receiving and external evaluations commented on the quality and excellence of the supports and services delivered by Brampton Caledon Community Living.
If these are indicators of something, it is of our deeds following our words; of our values in action. This is not to say we always get it right, but it is to say that Brampton Caledon Community Living invests a great deal of time and thought in understanding the people we support and their families from a fundamental, existential perspective; that is, what it means to have a disability and what it means for a family to have a family member with a disability— and building out our supports from the individual outward. It is the reason why we place a premium on value-based approaches and on what our constituents are telling us. It keeps us honest.
