Our Home STEP Training program supports adults who have a developmental disability, and who will require supported living, to learn life skills and how to share space to live with increased confidence and independence.
Please note: Totals spots are limited, with 6 participants per week. Respite weeks are available weekly and year-round, but may be limited during summer season.
We prepare individuals to live in a home with non-family caregivers who can provide them with care, support and supervision.
This program is informed by the strong belief that people who have a developmental disability are members of the community and that their independence, dignity and right to self-determination must be respected and fostered.
The overriding goals of the Program are to:
• provide a safe and secure place where adults with developmental disabilities can learn to live in a family-home setting
• promote a high quality of life
• support community involvement, social inclusion, individual choice, independence and rights and responsibilities
Book an appointment with our program coordinator as soon as possible.
