Founded by the Saskatoon Branch of the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living in cooperation with Mental Health Saskatchewan Abilities Council. Cosmo is directed by a Volunteer Board of Directors. It is a registered charity and incorporated non-profit organization.
Capital funding has been received from the Cosmopolitan Clubs of Saskatoon, the Kinsmen Foundation, the City of Saskatoon and the Maunders R. McNeil Foundation. Saskatchewan Social Services continues to contribute toward the operating costs for program delivery. The balance of the necessary operating funds are generated from the productive activities of Cosmo.
All revenues of Cosmo’s social enterprises are directed toward enhancing services for adults with intellectual and/or multiple disabilities
From its modest beginnings in 1971 to its current program for 400 adults and 130 staff members, Cosmopolitan Industries Ltd. has remained true to its earliest commitment to offer services to those whose disabilities prohibit their involvement in other rehabilitation programs.
Cosmo was initiated to meet the long-term needs of adults with intellectual disabilities. Our programs continue to offer to adults with severe or multiple disabilities opportunities to enhance daily living skills. Where there is an opportunity for development, it is promoted. In every instance enhancing QUALITY OF LIFE is a key goal.
