Disabilities Minister opens new Minda community home in Mile End
Disabilities Minister Tony Piccolo today opened a new Minda Community Home at Mile End for people with intellectual disability and autism.
The new home will accommodate up to four young men, providing them with increased independence and lifestyle choices.
“This home will allow residents to live comfortably and independently in the community,” Mr Piccolo said.
“It will provide the ideal setting to further develop their skills and help them to continue to grow as individuals.
“Minda is South Australia’s largest disability service provider and they have been supporting people with intellectual disability for more than one hundred years.
“Minda’s dedication to improving the quality of the lives of people with disability and their families is to be applauded.
“The organisation’s focus on developing the abilities and skills of individuals with intellectual disability benefits many in our community.”
The State Government has committed $593,500 annually to the community home to increase accommodation places for South Australians with disability.
Minister Piccolo said that the opening of the new community home highlights the State Government's commitment to partnering with community organisations like Minda to improve the quality of life for South Australians living with intellectual disability.
