Accommodation Services provides a range of supports for adults with a developmental disability through the Supported Independent Living Program and the Residential Services Program. Individualized assistance may be provided for daily living skills, social and recreational involvement and accommodation search. Adult Services regularly liaises with other agencies and services to share information and resources in order to best support individuals served by the programs.
Community Living-Central Huron offers a day program through the Activity Centre to augment community activities and events. For an Activity Fee of $1 per day, individuals can participate in activities such as rug hooking, crafts, and Rock Band. Computers and resources to promote numeracy and literacy are also available. The Activity Centre is open from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm on week days.
Employment Support Program
The Agency’s philosophy is for individuals to be employed in paid positions and receive a competitive wage. Through employment and volunteerism people can experience the benefits of being a participating member of the community. The Employment Support Program provides free assistance (job coaching) to adults with a developmental disability to learn and carry out the responsibilities associated with competitive employment and/or volunteer work. Staff are skilled at developing individual training. The Employment Support Program does not actively seek out employment, as there are community services which provide such services.
