"Joe, Thank you so much for the incredible 3-day training. Your insight and expertise is sure to help take not only our supports to the next level, but our business as well. Looking forward to what's to come and hopefully working with you in the future!"  

- Marissa Marr, Day Supports Manager, Community Living Mississauga

“Community Living Algoma had set a vison of becoming an employment supports leader in our community for people with an intellectual disability. We contacted the Ontario Disability Employment Network for guidance and assistance to achieve the vision we have set. Mr. Joe Dale was invited to our community to facilitate the development of an action-oriented work plan to improve our performance with employment opportunities in the community at competitive wages. Three years later, we have overcome many obstacles and barriers and are proudly witnessing youth and adults working with employers at competitive wages. The passion, inspiration and motivation provided by ODEN assisted Community Living Algoma to move forward towards improved employment results for people with an intellectual disability.”

- John Policicchio, Executive Director, Community Living Algoma
