If you’re a Nova Scotia resident or even a one-time visitor, chances are you’ve felt the impact of the Nova Scotia Residential Agencies Association (NSRAA). Sure, a stop by NSRAA. ca will tell you that it’s “a coalition of non-profit residential agencies serving persons with disabilities,” but the mission of these 46 member agencies province-wide can be as diverse as the communities and people they strive to serve. Three representatives from the NSRAA spoke with Spotlight on Business Magazine from their respective offices in April about their collective mission to make communities whole and healthy. On the phone that day was Karen Lake, Executive Director of the King’s Meadow Residence Society in Windsor, N.S.; Kevin Walker, Executive Director of the Yarmouth Association for Community Residential Options and former Chair of the NSRAA; and Heath Spencer, Executive Director of the Shelburne Association Supporting Inclusion.
