Fulfilling Life

We assist people with disabilities to take greater control of their lives; living the life they choose by forming a Microboard or accessing Individualized Funding.

MICROBOARDS

A Microboard is a small (micro) group of committed family and friends (a minimum of five people) who join together with a person with a disability to create a non-profit society (board). 

INDIVIDUALIZED FUNDING

Individualized Funding (IF) is a payment option for people served by Community Living BC (CLBC). IF lets you use the money given to you by CLBC to create new, different kinds of services that will support you in your community.
