Barbara Horner

Barb Horner is, first and foremost a parent to Mallory and Josh.  It was Mallory who introduced her to the world of disability 38 years ago.


Barb earned her BSW at Dalhousie University as a way to study and gain insight about the systemic issues that impact the lives of persons with disabilities; and has worked within the disability, non-profit sector for over 30 years with personal, professional and volunteer experience—at a local, provincial, national & international level.   


She worked for both HACL as a Family Support Facilitator and NSACL as the provincial Community Inclusion Coordinator and is a founding member of the Kendrick Report Coalition, now the Disability Rights Coalition.


She is a past Board member of CACL, now Inclusion Canada and has Chaired various committees in this role, along with co-facilitating the  “Values, Vision and Action Workshops”--a Family Leadership series in five provinces.   


For the last 19 years she has been the Resource Centre Director of NS/PEI for the Huntington Society of Canada; and is currently providing very, part-time support as Interim ED for INS.


She is passionate about the power and strength within families, when they are empowered and supported to change the world for their kids.
