Peer Support Programs allow individuals with disabilities to share experiences and knowledge. Participants share information about managing a disability and help each other in developing strategies to overcome barriers. We offer one-to-one support, a weekly social group, and a monthly diners' club. For more information contact the centre at 613-542-8353 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Independent Living Skills Development
Independent Living Skills Development Services assist individuals to find the resources they need and develop life management skills to reach their goals.
Our resource centre has an extensive community resource library that offers information on topics such as food, shelter, and disability services in our community. We also offer a computer lab with internet access equipped with accessibility features such as voice input and voice output software.
Direct Funding Self-managed Attendant Services enables adults with physical disabilities to become employers of their own attendants. Attendants assist with routine activities of living, such as dressing, grooming and bathing. As employers, participants are fully responsible for managing their own employees within a budget that is developed on an individual basis.
For more information: Direct Funding Ontario.

We help participants overcome barriers, and develop and build their skills to become successful in their volunteer positions.
