Sooke Options for Community Living Association (SOCLA) is a non-profit society that supports people who have developmental disabilities and their families in the Sooke area. SOCLA began as a group of parents, educators and caregivers in the Sooke area excited at the prospect of providing programs and services in the Sooke area for families with children, youth and adults with developmental and physical disabilities. In October 1998, SOCLA was incorporated and registered as a non-profit organization. Over the years the Board of Directors, members and employees have worked together to establish day camps during the summer, winter and spring school holidays for children and youth with disabilities, an adult day program, a life skills program for children and youth and support individual life skills contracts for adults.
Sooke Options for Community Living Association exists to provide opportunities for personal growth, independence, and participation in the community for people who live with developmental and physical disabilities, and to provide support to their families and caregivers.
