What Home Means to Me


The place we call home is usually more than four walls and some stuff. People First of Canada recently released a video called What Home Means to Me. Shane Haddad, President of the organization, stated, "For people with intellectual disabilities, having a home means a lot. It means having freedom, having rights, having a life, and most importantly, being included."

Created by People First of Canada with support from the Canadian Association for Community Living, The video gives the unique perspective of 'home' from the life experiences of people with intellectual disabilities.

Canadians with intellectual disabilities hope the video will raise awareness of how important living in the community is to being included in the community and how vital it is to have welcoming communities to live in.
