New Prairie Branches Group Home to be Built in Wilkie

The Government of Saskatchewan is providing $200,000 for the construction of a new group home for Prairie Branches in Wilkie. Once complete, it will be home to five people with intellectual disabilities.


Prairie Branches currently supports 32 people living in their group homes, 14 people in their supported living program, 55 in day programs, and 30 in vocational settings in the communities of Wilkie, Unity, Biggar and Kerrobert.



This new group home supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy by creating more residential services for people with intellectual disabilities. Saskatchewan residents and communities that have done work that aligns with the Disability Strategy are encouraged to share their accomplishments using the hashtag #SKDisability.


For information on how to access supports for intellectual disabilities, please contact the Community Living Service Delivery office nearest you or e-mail clsd.info@gov.sk.ca. You can find the nearest office at www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/family-and-social-support/find-a-social-services-office.
