A CLASSy reception at Government House as CLASS celebrates 30 Years
Written on the 1 August 2013 by Karen Goldie
The clients and families of Community Living and Support Services (CLASS) Incorporated are honoured and excited about being invited to Government House to celebrate the organisation’s 30th year of providing services to people with a disability in regional South Australia. The Governor of South Australia, His Excellency Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC RANR and his wife Mrs Scarce are looking forward to hosting a reception for 100 guests, including CLASS clients and their families, staff, volunteers and supporters on the evening of the 4th of September.
CLASS is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation that supports people with disabilities, the frail aged and socially isolated to become more involved in their community. CLASS was formed in 1983 by a group of concerned parents living in Strathalbyn, looking for challenging and meaningful activities for their children with disabilities. Organic and steady growth of the organisation has seen CLASS now providing accommodation, in-home support, day options and respite services in the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula, the Riverland, Kangaroo Island, Southern Metropolitan regions and more recently are proud to add Mt Gambier and The Riverland to their serviced regions. CLASS still provide services to the clients that started their journey with CLASS thirty years ago.
CLASS is an innovative and community-minded organisation, whose vision of “our doors open worlds” is genuinely the main focus of the organisation. Chief Executive, Mark Kulinski states “the importance of disability services being offered in regional areas should not be underestimated. Traditionally, most services operate out of metropolitan centres such as Adelaide. CLASS is uniquely placed as a provider of services who understand regional needs and issues and is able to respond and work with government on service development.”
As more people move into regional settings, so does the need for additional services and it is great to see that CLASS is not resting on its past success and is continuing to actively develop into new regions providing innovative and different services to over 450 clients.
