Pulford Community Living Services Inc. is a not-for-profit community based organization aimed at providing non-institutionalized residential and day support for adults living with a developmental disability.
Started by volunteers in 1986, Pulford initially provided residential supports to six individuals and an outreach day service to ten. Over the years we have been able to grow in these areas allowing for more people to receive the supports that they require both residentially and in the day service. In addition we have grown in the type of supports we are able to provide to now include outreach supports to families and supported independent living options.
From the first person served to the numerous homes and options now available we have maintained a steady but moderate growth while ensuring that we maintain our high standard of individualized support services.
Pulford Community Living Services Inc. offers recycling pick-up within the Town of Sainte. Anne.
