Delta, British Columbia is a rural area outside of Vancouver BC. This is what was thought to be home to two young adults who are in conflict with the law and have a disability.

Please share something about yourself, your work, and what draws you to the Inclusion Network online community.
I have had the honour of working within communities for over thirty years. There have been many moments in my work that I have been touched by so many others and have been privileged to be a part of their life. The Inclusion Network offers a world of communication and capacity building to share what we all do best in community.
What part of the world do you live in? Would you share a bit about your neighbourhood?
I am fortunate to live in a rural area outside of Vancouver British Columbia. This area has an abundance of natural settings to enjoy life - lakes, rivers, mountains, hiking trails and camping. My immediate neighbourhood is home to children and families who take time to say greet each other and to collaborate when something our of ordinary comes to us in the day.
What would you like to contribute to this community? What would you like to receive?
I would contribute stories I hear of, stories I am a psrt of and stories that communities forge together. I am always interested in the views, comments and knowledge that others have to share.
How did you hear about this community?
Looking for something about community development on the web.
What are some of the questions you'd like to explore, or conversations you'd like to have with others in this community?
The first project I am hoping to start a discussion on in this and other communities is about the solutions to issues faced by high profile offenders who have a disability, are on conditional release and are attempting to reintegrate into community.
