About Us and Our Goals
The Coalition for Community Living was formed in December 1978. Administrators and staff of present Fairweather Lodge programs were the principal organizers of this coalition. The Fairweather Lodge is a residential – vocational community program providing opportunities for individuals diagnosed with persistent psychiatric conditions. The Lodge program allows individuals to function at their optimum potential. This includes learning ways to discuss and solve any problems or concerns along with helping one another in the process. The founding members have decided to broaden their interest beyond the Fairweather Lodge and have stated the following as their goals:
- To promote community support systems as well as to educate the public about Fairweather Lodge programs.
- To engage in research to meet the needs of individuals diagnosed with psychiatric conditions.
- To provide information relating to such research to care providers.
