The Story of Elmwood
In 1969, Elmwood was founded by Al Anderson and Howard Stensrud to provide a home for individuals experiencing intellectual disabilities in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. They were supported in this effort by the contributions of many including Rnold Smith, George Porteous, John Dolan and many other dedicated supporters.
Our founders of Elmwood dedicated their lives to creating community-based residential supports for individuals experiencing intellectual disabilities. They came together to fulfill their dreams and aspirations of a more human approach to disability services and fearlessly pursued quality of live for their loved ones.
Because of their dedication, and the dedication and support of many others, our agency, province and nation are committed to providing supportive and inclusive services for individuals experiencing intellectual disabilities.
They made their dream our reality.
