Expand the horizons and enhance the quality of life of those we support.
#GivingTuesday, a global day of generosity, is coming up soon! This is a great day for all of us to share what PCL is all about with our friends and family, and to inspire them to support us in our efforts. This year, the money raised on #GivingTuesday goes to PCL’s 𝘔𝘺 𝘏𝘰𝘮𝘦, 𝘔𝘺 𝘓𝘪𝘧𝘦 fund. This fund was developed to help finance people’s ability to realize their desires and dreams to live the life they choose and one that makes the most sense for their individual needs. Help us on #GivingTuesday by sharing PCL with your friends and family. Some of the ways you can support PCL on #GivingTuesday are by simply sharing our mission through social media, word of mouth, and giving financially. We can’t wait to celebrate this day of giving with you!

PCL HELPS PEOPLE:
Find jobs, make friends, have fun, enjoy life and have a great home of their choice.
My Home, My Life
Communities thrive when all members have a safe and comfortable home of their choice. PCL’s My Home, My Life fund directly benefits people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, empowering them to live in their own homes in the way they desire. Sometimes this means living alone, sometimes they share their house with people of their choosing. My Home, My Life was developed to help fund people’s ability to realize their desires and dreams to live the life they choose and one that makes the most sense for their individual needs. PCL needs YOUR help to make this basic quality of life a reality, because how people live matters.
Below are two stories of people who have benefited from gifts to the My Home, My Life fund.
