TONIGHT: Pulford Community Living Services has announced they will be hosting their inaugural Celebrity Basketball Fundraiser. Come down to the Playing it Forward Celebrity Fundraising Basketball game for family friendly entertainment and to support a worthy cause involving the University of Winnipeg Men & Women. The money raised will go to renovations such as widening bathroom doors, installing wall mounted sinks, etc. in order for homes to be wheelchair friendly so that people have access to all aspects of their home. At Pulford we believe that independence should be promoted starting in the home. We will provide a fun atmosphere with live music, face painting, children singing, and a heck of a basketball game!

Date: Monday December 8, 2014
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Duckworth Centre, 400 Spence Street (map below)

Pulford Community Living Services Inc., a not-for-profit community based organization, was established in November 1986 in response to the closing of a guest home that threatened to leave several people homeless. On December 1, 1986, three people moved from the guest home into their own home on Fleet Avenue, assisted by Pulford.

Since 1986, Pulford has continuously provided housing and supports to persons with a developmental disability serving over 150 people throughout the province. The supports provided by P.C.L.S. Inc. are intended to encourage and facilitate the individual's ability to live and grow in ways that the individual sees fit. “P.C.L.S. Inc. is committed to ensuring that individuals with mental disabilities served by Pulford have all the rights, responsibilities and opportunities afforded by independent community living. Pulford will proceed in this endeavor by providing appropriate support to each individual who receives support services.”
