Adrienne who is our current C.E.O., founded CPLF in 1989. Back in 1989 facility-based supports were much more common than they are today. It was then that Adrienne thought offering private homes for individuals with disabilities would be a much better model of support. To this end she created CPLF which today provides some 300 individuals support in their private homes. People with disabilities are much happier having their own home rather than living in a facility.
Neal is our current C.O.O. (Chief Operations Officer) at Calgary Progressive Lifestyles Foundation. He is dedicated to promoting dignity and life skill enhancement to Calgary’s disabled population. Neal believes that providing the best quality services to our individuals with disAbilities promotes self-sufficiency.
