Day Programs for people with disabilities

Our day programs are full of laughing, learning, exercise and friendships. With hundreds of activities, there’s always something new happening!

Our mission is to build a strong, safe, and supportive community for people with disabilities and their families, while meeting needs, creating opportunities, and inspiring inclusion.

How we help:

Individual Attention

Our minimum 5:1 support ratio means members will have the attention and support they need throughout their day. We pride ourselves on creating an exciting and safe environment full of opportunity for everyone.

What makes it special?

There’s a lot that makes our programs special. Some of the best examples come from our members themselves:

“I always told Ryan I would surround him with positive people and you guys proved it and nailed it again. Thank you.” (Walter, grandfather to Ryan a participant.)

Community inclusion

Our activities promote community leadership opportunities, inclusion and contributing to the community, which includes volunteerism!

Community-based locations

Located carefully within communities, our programs have close access to shopping, recreation centers, schools and public transit. 

Chill space

Each location includes a ‘Chill Space’ designed for relaxing and enjoyment with special lighting, music and objects that meet individual and smaller group needs.

Exercise spaces

Space to move, exercise and play is an essential part of our days that’s why each location includes a gym, exercise room or dance studio for movement.

Parks, adjacent green space, school playgrounds, walking trails or lakes can be found within walking distance of our program locations.

Full kitchens

Full kitchens at every site include a sink, stove, fridge and appliances which are essential program features that meet health and safety standards.
