Our History

AiMHi has been a leader in providing Community Living Services in Prince George for over 65 years. We are proud to support all members of our community in living their best lives.


AiMHi – the Prince George Association for Community Living – was formed by a group of concerned parents in 1957 who envisioned “Community Living” for their children.

This vision included:

  • a desire to have their children taught within a public school system,
  • a facility that provides respite services for their children,
  • having their family members returned from institutions to neighbourhoods in their family’s community,
  • daytime activities for their adult children to ensure they felt like valued and contributing members of society,

and finally,

  • services that provide safe and knowledgeable care.

Throughout the ensuing decades, AiMHi has aspired to meet these visions. We have grown and developed into what we are today – a non-profit agency funded by Community Living British Columbia and the Ministry of Children and Family Development.

AiMHi provides a wide range of services to children, youth, adults, and families. These services include:

Living Options

Employment Services

Family Support Services
(which includes Infant Development and Child/Youth Respite options)

Life Skills Training

Community Inclusion Services
