It’s a great place to be; it’s where I belong. I get to be with warm hearted people. I can write stories there. People at the organization help to do things on my MAP – I go on trips with friends; I volunteer at the Clothes Basket and now at the Food Bank.”Lacey Arlt, Supported by a SARC Member

Who are SARC Members?
SARC Members are community-based organizations that support people experiencing disability to live in, work in, and enjoy their community.
There are approximately 100 SARC Members located all across Saskatchewan.
SARC Members Provide Supports Tailored to Your Needs and Goals
SARC Members know that each person is unique. They also know that you can’t provide great services to someone without really knowing that person as an individual. SARC Members are dedicated to real, meaningful relationships with the people they support, which translates to services that work for each person and change over time as each person’s needs and goals change.
SARC Members have been champions of person-centred services for years, having worked in consultation with Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Social Services to develop The Comprehensive Personal Planning & Support Policy. This policy is at the heart of everything a SARC Member does – helping people live the lives they want to live.
Additionally, SARC Members have contributed to or have worked in partnership with the Person-Centred Culture Committee. This dedicated group of representatives from Community Living Service Delivery (CLSD), Inclusion Saskatchewan, SARC, and several SARC Members developed the Person-centred Saskatchewan website to share resources and information to strengthen person-centred practice in the province.
SARC Members have Knowledgeable Staff Committed to Quality Services You Can Trust
SARC Members have an Agreement for Services with the Ministry of Social Services that outlines quality assurance and accountability measures and reporting. Included in this is the Saskatchewan Basic Standards Review, which assesses whether organizations are meeting standards in the areas of: rights of the people being supported, service provision, health and safety, staffing, financial management, and Board governance.
SARC Member Boards and staff are committed to quality services and recognize that ongoing professional development is key to maintaining a high standard of service. SARC, as the provincial association, is here to help, offering resources and training opportunities through SARC Learning Central , including the COMPASS Training Package , a collection of quality training programs available at no cost to SARC Members.
You can put your trust in a SARC Member, knowing they have the knowledge and resources to provide you with top-quality supports.
SARC Members Help the People they Support Achieve their Goals
You’re in charge of your own life, and with a SARC Member it all starts with the person-centred planning process where you talk about what’s important to you, what needs and goals you have, and how you like to spend your time. Then, you and your support staff work together to make those things happen. Check out some of the things people have been accomplishing with the support of SARC Member!
