“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals.” 

– Jean Vanier

Community Inclusion

As a Support Worker community inclusion is important for the work we do in supporting people in their daily lives. Community Inclusion is about finding supports within the neighbourhood and society at large that a person lives in, and finding ways in which to access them for the betterment of a person's life; to make friends and find opportunities that are of interest to each individual person.

A Support Worker can expect to help an individual that they support in attending doctor or dentists appointments; shopping for groceries or general items; learning about their general interests and where they can take part in them, such as groups or places that offer them; and many other important factors that make up a person's daily living within a community. 


Supporting those in the Outreach program is important because it bring the services and supports to people's place of living that they are not able to access in the community, by themselves or at all. 

In supported outreach a Support Worker can expect to work side-by-side with individuals that they support in their daily living and provide help when learning tasks that bring benefits to their personal living, such as learning to cook, or keeping a home organized.   

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

Winston Churchill

"Home is not a place... it is a feeling."



Residential living is where an individual receiving support through CLBC (Community Living British Columbia) is able to receive support through that of home living with staffed members of Eclipse; day or night. 

In residential work a  Support Worker can expect to help take care of the home in which the individual they support is living, grocery shopping for the home, helping to cook and clean, understand safety procedures for fire, loss of power, etc. and supporting with a person's daily routine, such as taking medication at the prescribed time(s). 


Homeshare is a program that offers the ability to live with someone who is contracted to provide support through CLBC; the people that an individual receiving CLBC services are like that of roommates, there could be one person, a couple, or a family in which the individual taking part in this program may be living with. This program allows those using it to live in a roommate situation, but also independently by having their own space in which to spend time by themselves, if they wish. 

Co-Housing is...a village of mutually supportive people, sharing work and fun and care.
