Who We Support

We provide supports to children, adolescents and adults in a variety of settings, within the community. Individuals may have an intellectual disability and/or physical disability and/or use American Sign Language to communicate. We encourage every individual we support to be as independent as possible, respect that these individuals can make decisions to the best of their ability; and advocate that others in the community respect these choices and opinions.
