Day Supports for Adults With Developmental Disabilities

Information for People Receiving Supports and Services, Families, Caregivers, and Advocates.

In response to the shifting routines in our community and world-wide prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a temporary suspension of some of our supports and full closures of others. Things may seem different in this moment, but our mission remains the same.

Our main concern at this time is to ensure that we continue to provide the best support possible for the people we serve, while continuing to follow directives from our Provincial Government and following guidelines set out by the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Health.

Employment / Job Readiness

The Pre-Employment Program is a 12-week program that focuses on developing soft-skills, interview skills, and resume building. Participants will partake in 12 modules, each focusing on a different skill and interaction to develop those skills. Upon completion of the program, ready participants may be referred to an employer for competitive work, if available. Staff will provide support from a hands-off perspective. (We make introduction, pay the participant, but do not work side by side with the individual). Once an individual is comfortable with work, and the employer is willing to hire the individual directly, they will graduate from the Pre-Employment Program. Individuals who still need to develop their soft skills can repeat the program.
