Residents may have spotted some new faces using the Oak Bay High track since the start of 2021. A budding program that moved into Oak Bay late last year sprouted from a need spotted by 11 area families. Each had an adult with developmental disabilities in need of a better model of care and wound up forming two individual groups. Those groups became one, now under the umbrella of Victoria Community Connections, said Katrina Villadsen, program director. The inclusive, family-governed model with a volunteer board run by the families, started in 2018 and moved to Oak Bay in late 2020.
